Hi -

I have an existing drive from my older vista computer I want to install as a slave on my new Vista 64 bit. I have a copy of Quickbooks on the slave drive, but I'm having trouble moving it on to the master drive. Is it possible it would work from the slave drive? Just wondering, thank you!

You should reinstall it to make things easier on you. Some programs run fine without being reinstalled, most of them don't.

If you are getting file not found errors, search for the file on the old drive and try moving it to the correct directory on the new drive. You might get lucky.
