ok long story short.
recently i have bought a entirely new computer. built it my self so that rules out the manufacturer bs.
so i have windows vista and i recently hooked up my old hdd (that had windows xp) as a slave drive.
when i try to use any program on there such as CS3, itunes, winamp, or any game such as Americas army, Armed assault, combat arms or any other game it will not work.:confused:
1. the error for the games are "cannot find instalation files" or enable to locate "americas army" registry entry. and with Arma its something about the registry and re-installing. i have alot of games on this HDD and don't i'm using reinstall as a LAST RESORT.:icon_sad:
2. as for the software programs such as adobe CS3 it says i need to re-install or repair the problem? says that for all other software.
now is this because Windows XP is installed on my old slave hdd? and i know for a fact that all these games and software are compatible with Vista.
is there a fix? or do i really have to re-install all these programs that would more than likely take a week?
all help is wanted. dont care if its off topic or not so significant. all help is very much appreciated.
thank you for your time
