    Hey all,
    I was wondering if anyone has any idea how to create a Installation Disk from the already installed files.

    Basically, I have Unreal Tournament 3 installed on my old comp, but i lost the disk while moving (i know this sounds like a lie..but its not) and now i want to install the game on my new comp...but without the install CD i cant get very far obviously.

    Im sure there is a way to do this...most likely not very easy way tho.

    I searched around the net and came up with nothing related to already installed software/games.
    I've been reading alot of posts on Afterdawn for years and love this site...i got ALOT of answers here.
    Now im after something i havent found yet, so this is the first stop for asking the question!

    Thanx

    there is a program that supposedly pulls all the files & registry files to be put on another drive without the original install cd/dvd. pm this member "jony218" for that program name & possible link.

    maybe he doesn't know.. usually it takes manual registry hacking as well as installing certain files and registering dll's and the like.. often it just can't be done.

    yeah i know it wouldnt be easy...maybe not even worth the trouble. But it has to be possible to create a install disk.
    Once i find out how to do it, i'll see if its worth the trouble.
