Repost On Reinstalling Recovered Data
  

I'm reposting this because I have not gotten hits on this. I am hoping that I can get some feedback from someone who has experience in this area. Thank you.


Its nice to be back to this family. One of the few places I know to go for help.

Well, I have somewhat good news as per my drama of having my Vista machine die on me--after the tech dude fried his motherboard trying to replace my dying board.

The instructor from the tech school was able to recover data from both of my drives--one being above named Vista, and my storage driveusing Win2K OS.

I guess its okay to mention that my friends wife (who works in a hospital) had one of the doctors donate his old machine to me--being that I have to have it for daily functioning. It runs on XP which I'm not a fan of. Nonetheless, I can now try to rebuild my system data. But now having my restored data files from other two drives, I'm not sure what I have to do to put that on the XP machine. I can see some .exe files but I don't know how to transpose them; i.e, getting web links from Firefox, or software to put Nikon photos to HD. I really don't understand how to incorporate ini or dll files to approiate file. I see the .exe files, but how do I put these to use?

I'm sorta wondering if this instructor properly extracted files from other drives so I can read them. That is what I need so as to rebuild stuff--if that all makes sense. And I'm also wondering if this can be properly handeled here, or does someone have to physically be here to see whats on backup disc (files were compressed which I unzipped). I bascially wonder if there is a way I can actually read these so to put stuff back together.

Can anyone give me some kind of instructions as to how I extract my web links or make exe files work? I'm willing to provide my e-mail address if someone understands me and can guide me through the process. After losing my Vista stuff and now trying to start over is a new (and sad experience) for me. I also miss Vistas version of Majong too.

Thank you for your understanding.

Re: Repost On Reinstalling Recovered Data

After reading your post I can assume that you are trying to rebuild your entire Vista system on Windows XP. See this two are different operating system. The only thing you can take from Vista is the data. For the exe stuff you will need to check that whether it will work on Windows XP or not. Or else you will have to download those software's whichever they for XP version and install them manually one by one.

Re: Repost On Reinstalling Recovered Data

Well that was a poor choice of words on my part. I should not have implied "rebuilding" the entire system. I should have said getting the data to work on this XP machine--knowing that Vista and XP are different operating systems and may not work on one another.

What I was trying to ask is if anyone knows what I do in order to see (one at a time) how/what to get a program to work, or how to make it functionable. Example: I need the exe file that runs my digital camera. How do I get the files with this program to work/ Was is the process?

Do I have to physically have to have a tech person here? Or is there something I can do myself from your or someones instructions?
