A Microsoft update just de-activated my chosen Win 7 games, and removed my desktop icons. I deleted the old download and re-downloaded from this site, but the application still will not run. When I double click on it or click on open or run as administrator, it just keeps bringing up the install wizard again and again
I solved the null pointer problem this way: find the real Microsoft games ( it located in program files on C in windows 7) copy it or download the pack from net. then rename it as Microsoft games2 past it in program files windows 10 ( it will not work if you click on any icon) reinstall the windows 7 games foe windows 10 and play.
I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and immediately missed my games, especially Chess Titans and Spider Solitaire. I found your website and downloaded the zip file. Norton Software warned me against the file so I came back to your website and checked out the comments and reviews before installing the program. My goodness, it worked flawlessly and immediately right from the start! How easy that was! I got an extra bonus when my statistics for Spider Solitaire were not automatically deleted when I upgraded to Windows 10 and they reappeared the first game I played. So I was able to pick up where I left off without interruption. Thanks very much for your website. Love it!!!
I have click on the link Windows 7 games archive and it goes to another page Mega and starts downloading and gets about 79% and internet explorer stops?. I have google chrome and plenty of storage . The other link does not work. Can you help?
I am running windows 10 pro insider preview evaluation copy 14257.rs1 release.160131-1800 and the games do not run, MS are blocking them somehow, they channel you to their basic games then they want cash to upgrade pretty poor show in my opinion, no wonder the Pirates make a bundle.
Regarding the windows 7 games on win 10 After upgrading to win 10 ver 1607, the games has stopped working. I have tried to make it run as win 7 , as making win 10 use the 7 adjustments. but nothing seems to work. no reaction at all from the program when one double click it regards leif sund
You guys ROCK! Yesterday I was miffed by Microsoft (again) with one of their automatic updates. The update took away all my offline Windows 7 games along with dumping a few of my other programs. After reloading, all the programs did come back except my Windows 7 games. Doing a little search on the Internet, I did find your winareo.com site and downloaded the Win7Games4Win10. The games loaded easily and came back without a hitch, including my over 3000 win record statistic. You will find a PayPal donation from me later in the day. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Before W10 the 1803 version, I had already this games downloaded (play it every day) and I made a quick launch on my desktop (which I named: W7 games). Now the 1803 version is installed and off course all the games were disappeared. After downloading again from this site, the games work (ok for you and many thanks) but I only can start them up from the program bar (left, than to Games and than choose a game). I would like to have the same quick launch back, in with as the result was a square with all the games with there own logo. Nice view and easy to choose. How can I install such a quick launch again?
The DirectX software development kit (SDK) consists of runtime libraries in redistributable binary form, along with accompanying documentation and headers for use in coding. Originally, the runtimes were only installed by games or explicitly by the user. Windows 95 did not launch with DirectX, but DirectX was included with Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2. Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0 both shipped with DirectX, as has every version of Windows released since. The SDK is available as a free download. While the runtimes are proprietary, closed-source software, source code is provided for most of the SDK samples. Starting with the release of Windows 8 Developer Preview, DirectX SDK has been integrated into Windows SDK.
During the GDC 2006, Microsoft presented the XNA Framework, a new managed version of DirectX (similar but not identical to Managed DirectX) that is intended to assist development of games by making it easier to integrate DirectX, HLSL and other tools in one package. It also supports the execution of managed code on the Xbox 360. The XNA Game Studio Express RTM was made available on December 11, 2006, as a free download for Windows XP. Unlike the DirectX runtime, Managed DirectX, XNA Framework or the Xbox 360 APIs (XInput, XACT etc.) have not shipped as part of Windows. Developers are expected to redistribute the runtime components along with their games or applications.
It says that all the popular games Chess, FreeCell, Hearts, Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Minesweeper, Mahjong Titans, and Purble Place games can be got from the store in windows 8, I have downloaded what I wanted from this list but am unable to find Purble Place is this in the store or will it be added at any time as my son loved this game and keeps asking to play it.
The method described here uses an downloaded tool to patch the .exe files of the games so that they will run under Windows 8. This is needed because they check the Windows version and refuse to run under anything later then Windows 7. All you are doing when you patch the .exe is chaneg the value that the code tests against so that Windows 8 will pass the test.
