Past the MS-DOS era, most programs have to be re-installed, not moved. Errors in the registry could happen if you just try to move the program folder (and the program wouldn't function properly). Find the installation media, uninstall the current program and reinstall to a folder on the "C" drive....

"I have a file that is still under F: drive which was a external hard drive which no longer works"

If the drive no longer works, than there isn't any way to copy it.

The program was actually installed on the same system the C drive is on? Then all the registry entries for the prog point to F. Can you reinstall on C? That's the most straightforward way.
