  • Better to ask the application developer. The second machine would have no knowledge of any registrations that may have taken place on original machine.

  • Hi There,


    The details you have provided is not sufficient to understand the architecture and provide you suitable suggestion.

    If the applicaiton is your in-house application then you already have the installation source base with you and all that you need is IIS / Apache ( depends on how you have hosted your application ) , make sure you point the server to relevant source path.

    I would recommend you to post in IIS forum

    Changing the drives doesnt have any impact on the application.
