Objects cannot be found when keyword test is running on a different computer

I created a keyword test for our company software, the tests work as intended on my own computer. But after exporting the entire project suite onto another computer, testcomplete is unable to find any of the objects. The software being tested is the same and nothing else has changed. I'm not sure what the issue is and there are too many tests to relocate each individual object. Any help is appreciated.

There are many things that could be happening here but most of them are easily fixed. 


It would be helpful if we could see the code in the first place it fails and the name mapping for the failed object from the old machine and from the new.
