    Just tried the reg file to add the run as admin option (that part works OK) but the final result is the same. No games. That Edwin encountered problems with x86 version suggests there is something amiss somewhere.

    This might mean something to someone. If I look at the properties of the Games Shortcut it points to this...

    I've just done a test using my W8.1 retail discs to clean install W8.1, firstly the x64 version and then then the x86. Both installs were done as "clean" by deleting all partitions and installing onto unallocated space.

    The x64 version installed straight off. I had to do nothing apart from click through the installer next > next > etc. The files were correctly installed in the "Program Files" folder. It also took perhaps 30 seconds to install. I could see the progress bar saying installing Chess Titans, installing Purple Place etc etc. I don't see that with the x86. It just completes virtually instantly.

    So, the x86 version would not install. Curiously the installer defaulted to the USB drive holding the installation file as a default location, something the x64 version did not.

    I feel I've spent much time on this... enough time to call it a day for now.

    Thanks tuto. The games are perfect on my x64 set up. The x86 was just a test setup for W10 when the Tech Preview appeared. That PC is back to running good old super stable Vista

    Thanks.
