Installing Windows 2000 over an existing installation

Hello all again,

I installed WIndos 2000 over an existing installation.  I want to keep all my settings and applications.
When I logged in as usual my Power VPN is not opening.  I don't see any of my programs under the "start, programs" menu.

Any ideas on how to get to all applications from the new windows folder?  I don't want to reformat the Hard Drive and loose all my applications.


Thanks

Did you use the same user account after installation ?
Did you create a new user account after installation ?
Is it server or professional ?
Goto \Documents and Settings\ and check how many profiles you have there ?
Next goto \Program Files\Vpn.....something....do u see ur application there ?

Thanks

Your reinstall has reset your registry.  All of your programs are still on the disk but the registry information and icons are all gone.  You will need to reinstall all of your programs.
