Hi. Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. Unfortunately you have noit copied it the correct way. The icons on the desktop are just shortcuts to the actuall installed programs.

The process of copying is to locate the actual installer file for the game and then copy to the external hard drive.

Do you have access to your old computer now?

no, I no longer have the old computer
Tech Support Specialist: namzyanzy, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
In that case do you have the installation disc for the games? If not then we would have to accept that we would not be able to install the games in your new computer.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
