Windows 7: transfer exe file and settings

12 Aug 2009   #11

windows 7

Thanks for the suggestions. I can access the hard drive that crashed...all of the data is there...its just that xp wont boot on that drive...i get the windows screen and then it reboots.

The problem i thought I had was you just cant copy a program file and run it on a new has to be installed through the setup file.

Since I didnt have the install disks anymore I thought there might be a way to migrate the program along with the windows settings to allow it to run.

But as an afterthought I just did a copy and paste from the old hard drive to the new.

I then double clicked the program...and windows 7 took awhile but to my amazement the program worked. I just had to reinsert the key.

The program is a data mining program for poker sites.

Thanks again

Problem solved

User Settings Transfer
I'm guessing there's a tutorial around here on this, but I can't seem to find it, so I'll ask. Is there a way to "clone" a user account while changing it from one type to another? I.E. I have an administrator account which I've used for a while. All of my settings are the way I like them,...
