Age Of Empires 3 Installation Failed Could Not Load Datap.bar

I need some help. I have messed up my installation of aoe3 and now it does not work.
Situation : I had installed aoe3 complete collection normally in C (OS) drive. But, later I needed space in C, so i cut the whole aoe3 folder and pasted in D drive. Now, when I click on age3y.exe it says 'Initialization Failed. Could not load DATAPY.BAR'. Also, when i click to age3x.exe it says 'Initialization Failed. Could not load DATAPX.BAR' , similarly when i click age3.exe , i get 'Initialization Failed. Could not load DATAP.BAR'.
I know, uninstalling / reinstalling will 99% fix it, but that would be my last resort.
Any help would be appreciated.
