File copy

In HA environment, after closing db on master and on replica site successfully, I copied all files of master to a different master pc.
When opening db, following error occurred on master side.
libdb_dotnet51:DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
I would like to know what happened here?
As per my knowledge, physical copy is ok and error should not happen. Is my understanding correct?

FYI: Difference between PCs is original PC is Win7 32bit, and new pc is Win7 64bit.

Thanks and regards,

    Although you're using HA this does not appear related to HA at all. Really you
    are taking a backup of an environment and moving it to a new machine. You
    should read and follow the instructions here:

    In particular, it is unlikely the addresses in the region files (__db*) are valid on
    a new machine. Also, after copying the files, you need to run catastrophic recovery
    on the new backup environment directory.
