You'll have to re-install the programs.
If you're worried about Steam that's easy- all of the games can be backed up to a seperate drive so all you do is re-install steam then copy over the game folders. Pretty straight forward.
Other wise you'll have to re-install each app. The only away to avoid this is with a program like Acronis True-image but that's going from one drive to a new one.
