    Solitaire Collection from MS Store Won't Run


    Greetings,
    I'm running Win 10 Build 9860 and I find neither Microsoft Solitaire Collection nor Microsoft Sudoku installed from the Store (xBox versions, I think) will run. They look like they are starting, but then the dots in a circle freeze and the app minimizes. I've installed-uninstalled-reinstalled to no avail.

    Anyone else having this same problem?

    Or is Microsoft cleverly disabling their own games to enhance the productivity of Windows 10?

    Thanks for any help.

    I can't get either of them to work either so I think they simply aren't compatible with Build 9860.

    Hi there

    Strange that -- as the CLASSIC Solitaire type games from Windows 7 run without any problem. !!!!! I still prefer THAT version of Spider solitaire to the Store one anyway.

    Cheers

    Yeah, I have the Win 7 Spider Solitaire installed on my Win 10 VM and it works fine. I only tried the other ones that AlbusD asked about to see if they worked for me or not.

    I have the Win7 Mahjong and Solitaire on my Win10 and Win8.1 computers, no issues so far.

    Where did you get the Solitaire? I can't get mine from my win 7 machine to work
