    Cannot reinstall 3 favorite programs with Version 1607 update

    My desktop and laptop have updated to Version 1607, Build 14393.187 (Windows 10 Home), and the update conveniently uninstalled three of my favorite programs--Windows Movie Maker 6, Chess Titans, and Spider Solitaire. I had installed Chess Titans and Spider Solitaire successfully in Windows 10 using msgames_win8_x64.msi, but now when I try to reinstall the games, the icons reappear, but the games won't start. The new version won't let me reinstall Windows Movie Maker 6 at all.

    Funny thing is that Revo Uninstaller shows both Windows Movie Maker 6 and MS Game for Windows 8 listed as installed.

    Is there an additional step or setting that would let me reinstall these programs? Thanks.

    Spider Solataire is on the Store you you should be able to install it from there. I use Movie Maker 2012 from this link in W10 and it works fine Chess Titans appears to be unsupported in W10.

    There are lots of chess programs on the Store as well, just a matter of trying some out to find one you like.

    Thanks, all. I solved this problem. I downloaded games from here. That reinstalled Chess Titans and Spider solitaire. I had saved my original Windows Movie Maker 6 .msi file, and after a second try, the reinstallation worked.
