I'm assuming you didn't format, but just installed XP over top of the old one?
This would replace the registry, and thus lose all the values needed for Windows to know the programs you had installed previously.
Is the program even on your computer?
C:\Peogram Files\
it will be in a folder called ms works, or works, etc if the program isn't on your computer you will have to find the cd. If it is on your comp, then you may be able to put the reg keys back.

still having problems trying to get my works suite going. i installed a program called spyware gold from Aust. had problems made contact with the company they told me to uninstall it, which i did. They sent another program and followed it up by a phone call to me. Didn't do anything.When i uninstalled there program i must have deleted my works suite as well as the muck up's that happened, restore white screen no e-mails couldn't get windows updates. So my nephew uninstalled everything on my computor, then i reinstalled my xp. that's how i've been able to get on line. I new at this computor thing but i do think it's still on my computor somewhere, i'm unsure on who to ask, not a happy chappie!! Don't really want to purchase a new works suite program,
Hi Chris,

If you have deleted MS Works from your pc and lost the CD which was provided to you bundled with a computer you purchased, you'll need to contact the manufacturer of the computer who supplied the applications to you.


If you have proof of purchase you can give it a shot here for Replacement of CD or Product Keys
