SQL DB Disatster Recovery

Is it possible to recover a chain of backups on a tape library to a new install?

I did manage to copy the DATA and CATALOG folders from the old install but I am not having any luck reinstalling BE15 or 16 and have it actually start and open the program even after a complete re-install. It just opens and closes.

The old install was from a while ago and the SQL DB and creds are lost to time. The unit was backing up until recently when the SQL DB failed and would not recover.

Is there any hope here or should I just start over?

By chance I happened on that last night and uninstalled it. I am starting over today.
