    Solitaire Collecton is Broken


    I have been using this collection for months now. All of a sudden, coincidental with a Windows update, I still get the splash screen for the Solitaire Collection but when I select a game the application shuts down. I have downloaded the latest version from the Store, twice, but it still fails.

    So there is a broken piece somewhere.

    Hi there

    If you prefer the old W7 versions I've a link on W8 Forums -- works fine (at least for 64 bit windows - haven't tried the 32 bit version for Donkeys years !!).

    Just search under my User id (jimbo45) on W8 Forums --the dropbox link AFAIK is still valid --file name mgms.exe )choose 64 bit rather than the 32 bit version)

    Cheers
    jimbo
