I've tried that method before, and it's working. Unfortunately it's not The Sims 3, but Warcraft 3. My suggestion is, you should give a try. Since you've no other option, it's worth to give a try, since it didn't cost you anything.

Hello,

No! God, no! It's the best things not to copy the programs/games to your new PC. Not only because your PC will not actually recognize them, but also because you may copy other crappy programs you do not use any more too.
Copying might work at first, but it will cause problems eventually.
When starting "clean", do it good! (Will cause you less headache later)
