    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.
    OK, silly me. However, I don't use Insider builds and I think most people don't use it either.

    If you have an issue then I suggest you report your concerns to a mod or admin rather than acting like one.

    Not at all mate- I hope I didn't come across being dismissive.

    The question was can you transfer Windows 7 games to Windows 10.

    The answer is yes. But after the next major upgrade (in April or whatever they foist Redstone out generally) they will not work.

    You can get them to work (apparently according to MDL) but it is a bit too involved for this forum.
