Reinstalled Windows, installer problem

I simply reinstalled Windows, but my ESO files are intact. The problem is the required registry entries don't exist, I need to run the installer for that. HOWEVER, the installer refuses to work unless there is all those 80GB of free space on that particular disk. I don't have that! The game is already there! I just need to "initialize" it.
What do I do?
This appears like a pretty bad oversight :(

    Hi, you dont need to reinstall or "initialize" the game. Just install the latest VC++, DotNet Framework and DirectX components

    Files can be found in Launcher folder

    Have fun

    Start the launcher and click on "repair". That should recreate the registry entries needed. At least that used to work.
    The Sidekick Order:
    The Naked Nords | The Cannon Fodder of Tamriel | The Mercenaries without Skills | The League of formidable Crafters
    The Psijic Order - 0.016% | Elder Moot | Lone Wolf Help | Great House Hlaalu

    edit: oops, was looking for the repair button elsewhere.
