    Installing MS Solitaire Collection WITHOUT switching over!


    I run the MS Solitaire Collection on Win8.1 and login using my local account.

    So, I tried to download this from the Windows Store and, after I supplied my MS account credentials, it wanted to switch me over to running from my MS account -- which I do NOT want to do.

    Is there a way to download and install this without switching over?

    Instead of switching, select the option to sign into each app separately instead (which says Not recommended) in blue at the bottom of the window.

    OK, I'll try that. Thanks

    Update: It worked -- kind of. It's trying to sign me into an Xbox -- which I do not have.

    My mistake -- this is the XBox version of the game, not the Windows 8 version. Will have to research this separately as simply copying over the files and folders from Program Files does NOT work.

    Isn't the Windows 8 version the one that uses your Xbox account? All of my Windows 8 games used my Xbox account.

    Hi there.

    Do you mean these ones (from W7 actually) but run fine on W10.

    There's a drobox link somewhere on the W8 Forum where I posted a link of how to install these .

    Cheers
