Is it Possible to Copy and Paste Ms and still have it work

Updates, Patches, Tech Forum Talk about MS Updates, patches, tech

I copied my MS files from my old laptop to a flash drive and SD card and copied them to my computer. (they are copying now). Will it work If I just copy it into 'C:' into a folder I made called Nexon, into another folder called Maplestory?

Yeah, it'll work fine but you can't use GameLauncher.exe or try to launch from the website because you don't have NGM.exe and GameLauncher.exe looks for the client path in the registry.
You have to right click the MapleStory.exe icon and go to Send to > Desktop.
On the icon in the desktop, right click it and go to Properties. In the target box, after everything, put a space and type 'GameLaunching' without quotes.

Here's what I've learned from my experimentation:

If you NEVER had Maplestory installed on the SECOND computer, then just copying the files won't work because that computer doesn't have the "Windows registry entries" Maplestory needs to run. Those registry entries are created when the game is INSTALLED directly on the computer by downloading and installing it normally.

But-

If you DID have an older version of Maplestory on the SECOND computer some time in the past, THEN copying and pasting the Maplestory folder (the entire folder) to the second computer WILL work, AS LONG AS you make the new folder EXACTLY like the old folder.

That is, the normal location of the Maplestory files is in a folder called "Maplestory", which is in a folder called "Nexon", which is on the C: drive.
So if you copy the Maplestory folder and put it inside a "Nexon" folder on the second computer's C: drive, the game should work completely normally.

But- that's ONLY if the second computer had Maplestory on it before.
