Re-referencing software from non-OS drive?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This morning, when booting up, I received a blue-screen with error code c000007b. I did some searching, fiddling with the recovery console, etc., to no avail, so I went ahead and re-installed Windows.

Fortunately, I had everything else on my HDDs; programs, games, User folders, etc. Now that I'm back up and running, I'm wondering if there's a way to reference the software back into Windows. For example, I have Office installed, but W7 doesn't know it. Another example, I have MSI Afterburner, and although I would re-do the setting to start up with Windows, it doesn't seem to apply.

Ideas? Thanks in advance.

Been a couple days. Shameless bump!

unfortunately you will need to reinstall those application.

windows uses a registry, and the registry was wiped when you reinstalled, chances are, most the lib's that are required for these programs were also removed.

Damn. Well that answers my question. Looks like it's time for a full format soon...

Thanks.
