Lightroom: After reinstalling Lightroom, how do I point it to the original catalog?

How to retain catalog when re-installing Lightroom 3 on a freshly install of Windows 7? My current OS drive is too small for Windows 7, so I am replacing it with a larger drive and installing Window 7 64-bit on the new drive. Lightroom catalog and photos are on another drive and also backed up. After reinstalling Lightroom, how do I point it to the original catalog?

You will find a lot of info about the catalog on this page of the help files: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Lightroom...

To make a long story short:

  • make sure your deives have the same drive letters assigned in Windows as before

  • Open LR by double clicking your catalog on the other drive (the *.lrcat file)
