You probably need the installation package. When you install a software on your computer, it doesn't only copy its data and executable files to your hard drive, but it normally creates a lot of registry keys and registers a lot of DLL files in your windows directory, and it also installs any prerequisites that might be needed for that software.

Your computer might be missing some of those DLLs and it is missing the registry keys for sure. You should either export the REG keys and find all the needed libraries and install them as well or just get the installation package.
