Specs: Windows XP
Does anyone know how to copy a program file or part of the file from one drive to another? I have the e: and the c: in my computer and I am missing a program file on my c: drive that I just found in my e: drive.

Is it possible? Thank You

What file?
Is your E: a Windows CD?

- Normally Right Click the file
- Chose Copy
- Goto the drive and directory you want it in.
- Right Click and chose paste.

This only works if it is not compressed in a CAB file.

Ace,
Thanks for your reply.
What file?
It is a program file... Microsoft Frontpage (I only need a certain part of it, because I recently re-installed Office 200 onto my C: drive ... [I can explain])

Is your E: a Windows CD?
No, it is not. My E: is from my old computer ... I pulled it out of old computer and installed it (physically into slot) in my current computer.

Can I still do it that way you suggested above?
Thanks

Program Files are the same as Word Files and other files they just have EXE extensions. They can be copied the same way. Right Click Copy then Right Click Paste.

If you are trying to copy MS-Front Page then its files are located in \\program files\microsoft directory. I am not sure that just coping them will work because you have to put the appropriate registry keys in to allow the program to know where the files are located. If they are just HTML files that you created in Front Page then you should be fine.

Thanks guys,

Problem is: When I searched through the program sub files, I wasn't sure which part of the file I need. However, today, I got a fresh copy CD Rom of Windows XP ....

Should I just install it so that I will have everything fresh? If I do that, will it copy over other programs, etc?

Should I even bother re-installing WIndows? .... I know there are some other programs missing that were originally installed, but the problem I was having with WORD before is now fixed since I re-installed Office 2000 .... I was just worried because during the installation, it prompted, "Unable to access configuration for Microsoft Personal Web Server".

I am concerned that could result in problems that might cause in the future, but so far I have been able to compose WORD documents successfully that component.

Wait a minute. I thought you said you where having a problem with Front Page or Office 2000. Now you are going to reinstall XP to fix the problem? Is the problem with Windows or Office? You do realize that that these are different products and Windows XP does not come with Office?

I would suggest you get some one to help you because if you install XP thinking it will solve your problem and you do not inst XP right it will whipe everything put.
