Well, I have already slaved the drive up to another desktop and copied over the data. But the problem becomes then that I can not access the program after that. It will either give all kinds of errors. I think the issue with just copying over the data is that this old program is set to run from C:/"program name" and access it's database at D:/hin/"database" and just copying it over messes with the paths. It also seems the program is slaved to the copy of windows and the ID that is put in when installing windows. As if I try and run one part of the program it tells me that it is "not setup to run on workstation ....." Any driver issues I could hopefully bang out slightly if I can just get it running on another box.
Oh another 2 joyous parts of this system and another reason we have been begging the boss to purchase something else. The original maker of the software went out of business in 1995 (yep I thought 5 years ago, found out it was more like 12 today), that leaves no support for this stuff at all. And the second is when the system was setup by the software company that decided to lock everything down on it. You can access the user account where you can run the program, and that is it. No one knows the admin account password or how to get into an admin account on the machine. I managed to sit there one day and guess the admin account password but always get the error "You can not log on interactively".
Makaveli213 - Positive it is windows NT. Was hoping to slave the drive up to one of my xp boxes again and image it that way. Completely remove working inside of NT for the above reasons of no admin account and the user account cant do squat.
