feasible; probability the success: low. Probability for error : HIGH

You must use the very same user name on your new computer.

You would have to copy, and also place in the same-named locations:

the My games EA folder

the whole game

And climate export/import all appropriate registry entries.*

And possibly several other procedures that ns can"t remember, since I probably just went the easy route. Ns don"t think there"s any type of other documents in e.g., "AppData".

There room websites that will generate registry entries for you, noted you have actually the CD keys. I beg your pardon you should still have on the cases.

You"re also in luck, because Into the Future is the decaying you"ll have to run the game.

*I leaving you small instruction here, as you have to be well-versed prior to you also touch the registry on your brand-new computer.

Moving video game to new computer there is no disc?

"If you no longer have the disks, ns recommend registering your games in origin which will give you a digital download copy the the games. You require the serial numbers from the box or hand-operated to do that; if those space also missing you can uncover them on your desktop computer if the lennythewonderdog.nets are still installed." –Carl"s
