I have tried what was suggested above with placing the information from my E:\ drive into the virtual C:\ drive. That part worked. I can get some of my small secondary programs to work. By secondary programs, I mean small stuff that I've picked up from various places on the web over the years. I still can't get my main programs to work.
It looks like I'm going to have to reinstall all of them. (What a pain.) That is if I can figure out how to get my DVD reader/writer, which is on the Windows 7 hard drive to read into the virtual C:\ drive. So it looks as if I'll be not only looking for information on the web, but also starting a new post here also
Thanks to those of you who answered. It was at least partially successful anyway. Thanks again.
