Is there a walkthrough for that? Never did it that way. BTW, its so funny how the volume, and media player controls on the k/b are still working. Epic, isn't it?

So the drivers are loaded, but not the service/dll/??? that Windows loads for using the keys.

EDIT: There's no walkthrough, I don't think that many do it, or suggest it. But it's worked for me in the past so I stuck with it. It just occured to me one day that that's how games install, really. The folder tree is created with game files, and then registry links are created for it. So if you back up the WHOLE reg hive, then those keys which have the folder locations and COA's will transfer, too.

I, myself, only did certain keys (ones that I wanted) since I was only transferring a few games...but if you are moving all of your programs, the whole reg would work just as well.
