Windows 10: Solitaire Collection from MS Store Won't Run

    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?
    (Bosses everywhere will rejoice.)

    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.
