    If I have no comment, then I simply won't say anything at all (because "no comment" is still a comment nonetheless). I would rather summarily ignore them altogether, and leave them wondering what my position is.

    The Window 7 games don't work on any RS1 release - 10586 is the last build they will work. After that you can install them but running the .exe does nothing. Not sure how or why but MS seems to have blocked them

    If you like solitaire then this is quite a good (free) alternative. Download 123 Free Solitaire - MajorGeeks

    Is your comment that you wouldn't say "no comment"?

    Or are you saying you will not post about something by posting about it?

    What is the point of your post then? I do wonder (idly) what your position is and also what subject your are supposed to have a position on (assuming you do).

    I'm astonished - this is one of the most confusing posts ever.. Congratulations

    @lx07:

    Is your comment that you wouldn't say "no comment"?
    Yes, that's exactly what I mean, except it was directed at the guy that initially said no comment.

    Or are you saying you will not post about something by posting about it?
    Not exactly, I think you're confused.

    It's better to leave your opponent uncertain of your position, rather than give it away to them, because then you have an advantage. If you can control the mind of your opponent, you have already won the war. I much prefer indirect warfare over direct warfare. Not that anyone here is an enemy, just that I'm very untrusting of people, even my own family and relationship partners.

    I'm a student of the "art of misdirection", commonly used in magic, but also in other areas. It entails making people believe you are doing one thing when you're actually doing something entirely different, and right before their very eyes.

    I have just upgraded my wife's laptop to Win 10- 32bit , but cannot download any card games from the M.S Store for her. I get as far as Selecting 'Free' on the Store page, but then get the message " Try Again Later.- Something happened at Our End" !!
    I have tried again and again, but get the same message.
    Are the M.S Games bit specific i.e. are there 64bit and 32bit packs, or could I copy the games off my Win 10 - 64bit PC, and paste in the 32bit laptop ?

    If you wish, you can install the game pack of Windows 7 from my G-Drive. Will work with Windows 10:


    1. For X64: msgames_win8_x64.msi
    2. For X86: msgames_win8_x86.msi

    You have "twiddled" with the installer (if that is a word). It works up to 10586 - I know that and I love it.

    It doesn't work after 10586 though on any RS1. It installs, the programs are put in C:\Program Files

    They don't run though. You click on the .exe and it does nothing.

    Try it.

    10586 is the build number of the current general release of Windows 10. It is also known as TH2 (Threshold 2) or 1511 (November 2015). Your games work fine on these releases..

    The games however don't work on any insider preview builds later than that. RS is short for Redstone and the current insider build is 14257.

    You have changed somehow the installer so it works. OK.

    All the old Threshold releases worked (old preview builds, 10240 and 10586).

    Later releases (called redstone or RS and with build numbers greater than 10586) do not work. The games install but do nothing.

    Hope that is clear enough.
