Photoshop CS4 wont open after windows reinstall

I reinstalled windows the other day there on my primary HDD but on me secondary HDD I have Adobe CS4 installed. It's still there but won't open when I click it. Just the license agreement but when I click accept it just disappears.

Any ideas?

This is new to me, but try a possible re-install. It possible that part of the files were installed on the C(or whatever your default drive is) drive. It's common to happen with Microsoft programs, not sure about adobe though.

If you did a clean re-install of Windows, you will need to re-install Photoshop.

If you did a repair installation of Windows (upgrade-in-place over the same version), you may have to re-install Photoshop anyway.

It would have been helpful to de-activate Photoshop before re-installing Windows, to prevent any issues if you needed to re-install and activate the Adobe product.

Thanks for the replies guys. I can't get access to the disks until tomorrow and was looking for a possible quick and simple solution to this.

I did deactivate before reinstalling windows too.
