Need new windows install but...

I need to re-install Windows 7 on my rig but I have a question.

Most of my applications and games are stored on a separate hard drive while my OS is installed on a SSD. Will I need to reinstall all my software from the Mechanical HDD or will windows 7 on the SSD recognize them?
