Hard Drive with windows is dead, i saved my programms on the other drive

#1
Hey my ssd became dead. i bought a new one and reinstalled windows. On my HDD though are all my programms installed. Can i somehow not reinstall all of them? cause for example i can execute audacity from the other drive. Is that buggy, or can i just add connections to the desktop and keep it like that?

Some programs are indeed working but you should really reinstall everything...
Most programs will miss their registry settings and/or files in "AppData".

The only programs you don't need to reinstall are the portable programs.
