    Running Windows 7 Spider Solitaire in Windows 10


    Is it possible to copy the entire Windows 7 Spider Solitaire folder to Windows 10 and then run Spider Solitaire in Windows 10? Same for Windows 7 Chess Titans?

    I doubt it, you'd have to run the installer(s)

    They are available from a kind fellow forumeer.
    (I'll find the link in a minute)

    Hi there
    For installing Windows 7 classic games on Windows (They aren't included with Windows 8 --only the rubbish one's (IMO) from the store) download and install :

    Choose the correct version 64/32 bit depending on your W8 install.

    Anyone tested 32 bit version? it doesn't work for me. (no problems during setup and it says everything installed fine but I cant find any of the installed games)

    64 bit version is fine.

    Fired up Win 8.1 ent VirtualBox machine and reproduced problem so its not PC specific problem.

    The 32 bit install mod might be confused and look for Program Files (x86). You could try installing it to that folder - not sure if it will let you or if it will work.

    Windows 64 bit has this folder to distinguish between 32 bit and 64 bit software, on 32 bit system there is only Program Files folder. Should I create Program Files (x86)?

    Manually created Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games folder on 32 bit system still no go.

    Seems that 32 bit installer is broken.

    This link works to run the Windows 7 and earlier games on Windows 10 (tried it on build 10162 on a 32 bits PC)

    Get Windows 7 Games in Windows 8-10 (Updated!) - YouTube
    It points to this download:

    MEGA

    No thanks. The download tried to install Tweakbit (which I deleted).

    Hi there

    I only installed the 64 bit version which still works even on build 10264.

    I might try and install in a VM but I don't see much (if any) use for 32 bit machines any more. When making the MSI I never tested the 32 bit version. I thought that if 64 bit version was OK the 32 bit version should be too --mea culpa if it doesn't work.

    Cheers

    I followed the link and downloaded the games. Thought they installed but they won't launch. Anyone else have any ideas? I'd really like to have the Windows 7 version of Spider Solitaire on my "new" Windows 10 machine.
