comment How to run an application from Windows XP in Windows 8?
There are a lot of programs which don't need registry keys, or configuration data. You can run them without a problem. Some others just rebuild their configuration as needed. Finally, some store their configuration in their own folder. All these cases work for such situation.

Exactly. It's becoming even more rare nowadays, as applications tend to use less and less the registry, and more the user profiles for their configuration storage. And either way, a lot of programs are perfectly able to rebuild their configuration registry or data from nothing, without reinstalling.

comment Uninstalling hard deleted application from Windows7
@Ramhound - yes, it's not really the recommended way to do, and only a second option in my answer. The appropriate way is of course to use the normal uninstaller (even if that's not a guarantee to clean everything)
