Problem with new installation crashing and how I fixed it

I haven't posted here before but I wanted to report a problem I had and how I fixed it in case anyone else runs into a similar scenario.

I recently reinstalled 64-bit Windows 7 on my PC. I had backed up my hard drive before I reinstalled so I had all the contents of my user profile. Lucky for me or I wouldn't have been able to get WhatPulse working again.

I installed WhatPulse and once the program started, I was prompted to put my account information in. Before I could complete the form, the program crashed. I clicked to report the error. I tried checking the information that was being submitted and the only thing I saw was there was a file that it couldn't open in the 'C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\WhatPulse'. I tried checking the Event Viewer and I couldn't find anything there.

I tried Googling for a few minutes and didn't find a quick answer so I decided to try and copy over my backup of the AppData\Local\WhatPulse folder. Once I copied over the folder was my previous data, WhatPulse opened up with my account info in. It's also recording data and working like previously.

I'd like to know if anyone has a better solution.

TL;DR - If you can't get WhatPulse to work after a reinstall, I hope you have a backup your C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\WhatPulse folder or else, you may be S.O.L.
