Well hello all, this is my first post on this website!
I recently updated my computer from Windows 7 to Win8, and I used the option "Keep files and folders". So, I was expecting Windows to keep my software and programs too!
Searching in my computer, I found this folder "Windows.old", containing all I was looking for. I started to copy my programs and application data to my main Program Files folder, but I can't find a way to flag these files as "totally" installed on my computer.
For example, if I try to open a .psd file, it says "Cannot find the right program to use with this file extension".
I know, I could just re-assign the extension to the program but I would also like them to appear in the Programs and Features section of the Control Panel!
Is there a way to totally retrieve (like if they were installed) my old apps or just do I need to reinstall each of them one by one?
