Neither does right clicking. Just wanted to let you know that I upgraded to Windows 10 Build , reinstalled program and it says Internet Spades blocked by parental controls.
I have NO parental controls installed. However, I went back to Windows 10 build and games work fine. Curious if you tried on build ? I figured out why when you install a newer build to Win10 why games say blocked by parental control. My system is Windows Server R2 in Windows 8.
I downloaded and installed the game, but nothing works. I downloaded windows 10 to my windows 7 and lost the games like hearts, solitaire, etc and fond out through this website how to install it and it worked great. Thank you so much for your help….
But last night she called asking where to find Solitaire. These games will not run in I wonder what the problem is. I have tried compatibility mode to no avail. Same here. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. What is more, the update to build was kind enough to completely uninstall the games.
We were getting the null pointer exception in Solitaire undo. On my old Dell that had the games already install, which was upgraded to win10 RTM, then upgraded to , no issues whatsoever. Which is the fastest internet brouser in the world. Microsoft should have given away the internet explorer and the Bing bar years ago and done a deal with google chrome. I play these games after a hectic day of being a care-giver. You are a life saver! A blessing on you. I installed this and it worked fine.
Now I can play spider solitaire when the cat uses the keyboard as a bed! However, a little while ago a red ring appeared in the middle of the solitaire screen. It overlays the background and the cards. It also appears on the other games which I have tried. Any idea what this is? Well, based entirely on the colour of the circle red , I disabled and re-enabled my antivirus Bullguard and now the red ring has gone. Oh thank goodness!!! My enjoyment of solitaire and chess on the new lappy had dropped to nil because of all the web based crapola involved.
Now I can just play and relax. Bless you! My son thought it was stupid that I wanted Freecell until I made him play it just one time and he had to admit it was pretty cool. Microsoft might be striking back. Its latest updates are stopping your version of windows 7 games. I installed and played your zipped games successfully.
They are disappearing — not starting when I click on them. The files are intact, they simply will not initiate. I noticed a MS update last night and Minesweeper was not working today. Is it safe to poke the giant? I am running windows 10 pro insider preview evaluation copy I am also running windows 10 pro insider preview evaluation copy — They install but will not open, however the last played data updates. Very kind of you to allow a download without gouging us to accept more than we wanted!
On windows DLL module. IDK what changed but someone with deeper knowledge of it might be able to figure something out. I would like to play Wall of Words and Solitaire Cruise but cannot i bought them when i had Windows 7 How can i play them on Windows Will this also work on a brand new Dell with Windows 10 installed, I am a novice and really enjoyed the solitaire games which came with my previous Windows 7 and truly hate the collection which is available in the Micro Wave Store.
But have to admit I am devious about trying this as it might foul up my new pc. Is there anywhere I can verify the safety of this program? My husband has complained ever since switching to Windows 10, especially about losing Chess Titans. Thank you for making the transition bearable.
Update: this package now works in all Windows 10 version including Windows 10 Anniversary Update recent builds. Thank you very much for fixing this. Can you share what exactly did you have to do? Was it just another patch of the executable? Still a problem with the NULL error when you undo in spider solitaire. Any clue how to fix this? This works great — thanks! I was hoping and then was surprised that my game stats were still there.
Sergey,, Thank you for the help you have given all these people here. I have learned one thing though. OMG What the heck is going on? I got 10 installed on my computer from 7 and it caused so many problems it got frustrated and tried a rollback to 7.
I ended up having to re-install my system from scratch, but I always save all my files to an external 8TB drive from Seagate. I have never lost any files since getting that drive. Keep up the good work Sergey!!!!!
Something so simple and easy but yet Microsoft removes what has been favourites to many people for over 20 years. You have done superb work here. I would expect Windows 10 to lose in popularity after when the free period is over and done with due to the inconsistencies in the OS.
How to make them work on Windows 10 Anniversary Update insider preview, i am desperate to play games. Did you re-download the package after it was updated for Anniversary Update? Maybe MS got vindictive and broke it again on purpose. Just when I was celebrating the positive things about Windows 10 taking my games away more sleep, less wasted time, more work done, more books read, etc. Great download! Thank you so much for giving my Freecell, etc.
Shoulda known Microsoft would find a way to mess up a very good program. Many thanks for making it possible to have our favourite games back again. Well done! Has Microsoft caught up to this install? Great for the games, thanks. But why do a few simple games take MB? What else is coming down with those games? You can always use XP versions of the games. The Windows 10 versions are insanely bloated as hell.
And slow as hell and infested with ads too besides the dumbed down gameplay and removed options. Hi Sergey Having bought a Win 8. Thank you so much for supplying this work around to give us our favourite games back.
I uninstalled W8 and reinstalled the latest W10 version and all seemed fine for a few games — then the NP issue struck again. This really messes up our stats when the program aborts unexpectedly.
Thank you Sergey, the update with the new dll file worked on the latest Insider Preview just released to the slow ring. Hey man, I installed this game package on my W10pro machine 64 bits and it was working perfectly until this week that I upgraded to the Anniversary Edition released last week.
The games will simply not launch. After reinstalling, same issue, no execution whatsoever of the binaries.
Are you aware of this issue? Hello everybody. This version runs on windows 10 ver x Idinstvenno previously stored statistics — cleared when you start the game. Please re-download the updated package which has support for Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
The package you had downloaded early will not work. The updated one will do the trick. Remembered this was the place I got previous version of these games and gratefully found an updated download. Major thanks to all of you who wrote the new software!!! The anniversary update [censored]ed my previous Chess Titans install, so god bless to all the guys that made this fix. I unpacked them. The unpacked file never appeared, but nevertheless, installation began and the screens looked just as shown in paragraph 1.
The problem is that none of the actual games are anywhere where I can find them. I see none of the games I expected to be installed anywhere in the list. I have been playing this in Windows 10 v but after updating to Windows 10 v Aug. Miss playing Chess Titan. All you need to do is: — re-download the games package — re-install them.
Thanks for this, only one suggestion in locales like es-XX the installer install en-US as language, the installer must install es-ES as language in all es-XX locale i. Any suggestions? Re-download the provided package. It was updated some time ago to support Anniversary Update. Might want to find a cleaner way to get it working instead.
The most recent Win10 upgrade killed my Win 7 Games. What can I do to get it working again? Hi, the games have stopped working after a recent update. I have re-installed, restarted the game couple of times but it does not work.
On clicking the shortcut to the game spider solitaire , nothing happens. No application launches. Tried running the main exe and not the shortcut, same result, nothing happens. Please advice. You need to re-download the updated package and re-install it, not re-install the outdated package.
Re-download it, install and you are done. Regarding the windows 7 games on win 10 After upgrading to win 10 ver , the games has stopped working. I have tried to make it run as win 7 , as making win 10 use the 7 adjustments.
Thanks so much for keeping this current. It had vanished after the last automatic Windows update. Reinstalled it and my statistics were still there.
Just had to add one more voice of thanks. Really appreciate what you do. Hi, thank you for your work. I downloaded this but, after I extract the zip file, and try to run the exe file, Norton flags it and deletes it. Tried reinstalling with no success. It works here without issues. These games have stopped working on win10 Oct Can anything be done to bring them back?
Is there anything I can do? Have you got a recently patched version in the works? A big thank-you! Get rid of the aggressive Win10 sound and visual effects that are imposed! It is good to regain calm and sobriety! Especially that the Win10 Updates uninstall these games!
Once again thank you! I wonder if Apple make their customers suffer with every new release. Thanks for these games. In some cases, the information overlaps. Same results. Any idea how I can fix this? Melinda was very pleased, so many thanks for helping me maintain my status as the household computer-genius slight exaggeration.
Your awesome, thank you so much. Just one question, this version of spider has different rules than my old spider solitaire. Anyone else find this, or is it just me? I used the d3d9. Is there anyway to install this silently? With each new W10 version it appears that this needs to be reinstalled and I would love to automate this. Excellent — but every update to Windows 10 uninstalls the pack. I re-install and all saved games are remembered.
Now will not work after latest download, Tried uninstall and hard remove all previous versions in all folders and re downloaded and reinstalled with no luck. When i run the installer, select the games i want and start the instalation, an error message appears. I tried the compatibility mode and runing it as administrator, and the error still appears.
Any solutions? I installed the pack but keep getting the error when undoing. I have tested this on Windows 10 Creators Update and it also works on that update.
You should modify this page to say that. I just bought a new tablet, installed the games as before, and now NONE will work.
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. The games loaded easily and came back without a hitch, including my over win record statistic. You will find a PayPal donation from me later in the day. Thank you and keep up the good work! But now my gtx is having some priblems The game is too heavy for him. I like others I am sure would be prepared to pay a good price for such an option. I added up what I spend on drinks at Starbucks for one week and I am donating that amount to you.
I encourage other people to do the same. Everything works perfectly except Vegas scoring and also Vegas cumulative scoring for Solitaire. Any advice? March 2, I just got another Win 10 update and again, your games were gone. I Windows 10 Home edition, version , build Thank you for any help you can give me. I have bad news! The games themselves will still run though. There is an error in italian localization name folder. I use win 8. But Chess Titans in level 10 freezes the PC after about 30 moves, only shut down is possible.
I did try any ways without and with compatility modes down to win 7 and vista, but nothing helped. Now I will try DirectX 9 to install. The chess game froze the pc again. DirectX 9 does not help with a parallel insallation. Love being able to play the Windows 7 games so thank you. Been here several times to download those games and look around. Never commented here before. I then made a hobby of solving the games and put together a C program to find the best moves.
I recently put it at github. I was never able to trap that null pointer error in windows I am looking at that as it might be possible to have the correct older dll that does not cause the problem installed and used but I am no expert on windows internals.. The latest update fall creator? Before W10 the 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 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? Unfortunately, the game explorer folder was removed.
Thanks for the quick response Sergey. Yeah, Microsoft dictates how we must use our computers and leaves no room for own pleasure. Shame and a pity for older people like me. Of course I now have made a quick launch button to the games folder on my desktop, but I miss the beautiful icons. Maybe some smart computer programmer could write a program that will restore the Game Explorer to Windows Looks like the new Win 10 update trashed it again.
Did that last time and one day it just started working. I did the reinstall but no luck like the last time.
Open a game, nothing happens. Figured it out. Folder was empty. I never had any problems until Windows 10 build — Game Explorer no longer works even after re-install. Not a huge deal — just thought I would let you know. There was once such a great memory game from Microsoft where the cards were turned around. If you joined her the set would be great. The shell:Games command is what made the magic happen.
Until somebody figures out how to make all the registry tweaks work, this is dead in the water. The newer versions from Microsoft are slow, use way more screen space, and drive you to log in, etc. But thanks for having made it available. So for users of Windows 8 32 bit and 32 bit wine, no luck. Loaded per your instructions. Any idea? Hey, The statistics of the internet games spades, backgammon, checkers are not working in Is it possible to fix it?
Microsoft shut down the servers on their end. This cannot be fixed. The only way to get them back online would be to get Microsoft to turn the servers back on and that is impossible. They might even be using the servers for different purposes. The statement before this one may or may not be true. Just an FYI. Will this work on Windows 7? When my OS was reinstalled I had no games. My Dell is incompatible with Windows Thanks, Sande. Do you know how to fix this.
Other than that, thank you for making this available — I really missed these games. You can check yourself. The installer can be unpacked with 7-zip. I encourage everyone who enjoys these games to contribute even a small amount to this guy.
I added up all of the money I spend on coffee for one week and I donated that amount. PayPal allowed me to send money to an email address.
If you click on About and scroll down a bit, you will see the email address of hb live. I should have also said that you can use -3 minus 3 and -4 minus 4 to see the two other games that were used for testing during game development. Further experimenting revealed that a right-click on a card works anywhere on the screen not just in the starting positions of the suits. What to expect when you right-click on a card as it falls: All of the cards of that suit will return to their starting position at the top of the screen.
The king will appear squished down. Thanks for providing these, they are really great games. Many thanks! I was looking around and came upon this.
OR After opening, let it install wherever it wants to on C: drive. I happen to have Win 10 — version. MS auto update installed Windows 10, version amd64 The game cannot continue. I copied CardGames. More about CardGames. Size: 5. Thanks so much for making this W 7 to W 10 game transition possible. The best thing was the not losing the stats that I have years invested in. Anyway thanks again for your effort to make my life a little happier getting my games back I really appreciate what you did.
I downloaded and installed as per the Wizard. No shortcuts or anything. Have I done something wrong? Excellent being able to play Windows 7 Games on Windows 10! Thank you!!! Quick question. How can I get the new games to honor and keep all my old statistics.
I copied all of the scoring and config xml files for solitaire from my old windows 7 machine. On the first startup, the Windows 10 games read my statistics and winnings from the old machine, but as soon as I play a game, some of the statistics are forgotten — for example it will not add or subtract from my accumulated winnings.
Solitaire sets them back to just the winnings or losses on the first game and begins to accumulate from there. Is there a way to fix this? These games are not officially supported on Windows 10, so sometimes their behavior is unexpected. They no longer seem to work and the option to show the animation is grayed out with a check marked box. This stopped working for me a little bit ago and was before I updated to I was using Error message: An error occurred The application closed because an error occurred.
Chess however is still working fine. Hi Paul. The game servers are down. Microsoft has turned them off. Can you add Inkball to the package?
It is a retired Windows Vista game that was removed in Windows 7. I would appreciate if you added it. Like JB, I upgraded to Windows 10 version yesterday — and these games stopped working. But my old computer was dying, so I got a new one with Win Do the developers fix the games so they work each time this happens? Or will they never work again? The worst being the fact that the 2,3,4,5 of hearts are almost always dealt 1 of the 4 cards to each player. In other words, if you play the 5 of hearts once hearts have been broken, the other players will almost always have the 2,3,4 distributed equally among them.
It happens roughly 80 percent of the time. There are others, but this is the worst and most noticeable cheat. Ruins and makes worthless what would be an otherwise good game. Actually noticed this with Freecell…after so many games they are all hard. Just down loaded latest winzip with the same result also tried Winrar and 7-zip. Any suggestions welcome. My laptop managed to extract the file, so up and running again and very thankful.
Thanks for all your good work. Are you aware of any requirements dll? More information: Windows 10, Used to work until recently, but now every game process just silently exits immediately after I click it.
No idea how to investigate it. Tried to uninstall and reinstall and it disappeared. Went to your website, tried to download…nothing but chaos directing me to other products. Now I try to reinstall and all it wants to to is uninstall the new version that is nowhere to be found on my computer…. Should have left it alone.
The whole thing really stinks and is rotten. So is there any way to retrieve it? I apologize for the upset. I rely on Freecell to unwind during the day and am somewhat lost without it. If you can help in any way I appreciate it. The new Windows 10 version got rid of my old Spider and when I reinstalled it, got rid of that too. Stopped working with feature update to Windows 10, version Tried re-download install and compatibility troubleshooting.
Uninstall and reinstall got it working again. The Hearts application is working fine on my Laptop. I would like to transfer over my game stat. I would appreciate guidance on where the file is stored so I can transfer it over and complete my upgrade?
Thank You Sir! The factors that impact the amount of free hard drive space needed to take an update include: the versions of Windows previously installed on the machine, the amount of disk space available to reuse from Windows files, such as the virtual memory pagefile or hibernation file, which applications are installed on your device and how those applications store data.
Starting with the May Update, the system requirements for hard drive size for clean installs of Windows 10 as well as new PCs changed to a minimum of 32GB. The 32GB or larger drive requirement is set to leave space for users to install apps and to keep data on the device. Installing Windows or updating from a previous version of Windows on devices with less than 32GB storage will continue to work if the device has enough free space available. When updating, Windows will attempt to automatically free up enough hard drive space and guide you through freeing up even more if the automatic cleanup is not sufficient.
You can also take steps to free up space on your own. For more information, see Free up space to install the latest Windows 10 update or visit the related FAQ. In addition to the requirements above that are needed to run Windows, some features have additional requirements. In some cases, features included with updated versions of Windows 10 will be best experienced with newer processors. Below are some additional details regarding requirements for key features:.
