    I believe I saw a post from Jimbo the other day that said he had made an updated version that works with the Anniversary Update. If I can find the post, I'll come back and link to it.

    Edit: Hmm, maybe it wasn't from Jimbo, as I don't see it in his recent posts. I'll do some searching for it. Hopefully I can find it.
    Wow! Sure hope you can find the post!

    My wife will make me find a new home if I can't get the W7 games running again.

    Hmm, I can't seem to find it, although I know I didn't imagine it. I'll keep looking around when I have time.

    Chess Giants is the new improved version of Windows Vista Chess Titans.

    After installing the game, I checked in the Registry. There is only a 32Bit version installed.

    Here is their Website.

    I have Windows 10 build 14393.10 and all my old Win 7 games are working including Chess Titans, just checked. I installed these games after 14393.3 came out as FreeCell changed the way it was scored. No running tally of games won. I had over 4000 won and only 6 losses in the prior version.

    Thanks for the link, It works great. I use the Mahjong game and this new install added a tile to the start menu. The old version didn't.

    Update. I just play a game and it remembered my previous scores and this is after uninstalling the old version.

    Thanks so much for the link!

    The games even found the statistics left over from the upgrade.

    Thanks for all the replies folks. Yep, I've installed the Winaero games as well. Its much better having a single launch tile than having to create one for each game. In fact, although the method I tried yesterday (a few posts up from this) worked, some of the games wouldn't run due to a missing dll do-dah. Those were Freecell, Hearts and the two Solitaire games.

    Anyhow, great result all round. I think we'll mark this as solved :)
