    It won't be in your DropBox unless someone sent it to there. There is a link earlier on in this thread for it. The file name for what is working on my Win10 Version 1607 Build 14393.187 is Win7Games4Win10_8_81_v2_[winaero.com]_302.zip.

    Hi there

    You need to re-install it again -- download the MSI from the dropbox account and simply re-install again.

    Cheers

    I would like to get a copy of the MSI also. Can you please resend dropbox link?
    Thanks

    If you get tired of struggling to get Win7/8 Freecell installed and working in Win10, then find an old XP machine and copy Freecell.exe, Freecell.chm and cards.dll. No installation required, just put them in a folder and run Freecell from there. Pin it to Start for easy access. The other XP games work fine too.
