RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance

Windows 7 had a set of nice, beautiful games including the classic card games with new shiny graphics and some great new games from Vista like Chess Titans, Mahjong Titans and Purble Place. For some reason, Microsoft decided to discontinue these games and offers bloated Modern games from the Store instead. For fans of the original Windows 7 games, here is a simple tutorial to revive them on Windows 10.

      So happy that I have my Classic solitaire back on my Windows 10! Windows killed it last night during an update, nowhere to be found! They seem to think they own my computer! So this is the second time I have managed to install it against all odds. Thanks!!

      I wouldn’t upgrade to 10 from 7. No need 7 is good at least until 2020. Your computer probably won’t last that long anyway. By 2020 they will have all the bugs out & maybe then you can understand it. If not install ClassicShell.com & then it will be easier to use.

    AWESOME!! Sergey, “You Da Man!!” Nice job!! After installing Win 10 from Win 7 a couple of days ago I was real disappointed to lose all the built-in Win 7 games (especially Chess Titans). The chess games in the Windows crApp store are no match for it (I tried 3D chess and the A.I. actually made illegal moves!! so I uninstalled it – the ads weren’t too bad, just a crappy chess engine). Anyway, you have made me happy again!! Thanks for your efforts… Way to go!

    Keep up the good work!! :-)

    I just upgraded to Windows 10, and really felt lost when I saw that Solitaire was gone. I use it for a lot of things, including relaxation to music, and when waiting for internet things to load to make the time pass faster. Other Solitaire games I’ve downloaded either take up too much resources, don’t have enough parameters to alter, or are clumsy to use. Your Solitaire really hit the spot.
    Thanks.

    Thanks very much for the games that I lost after upgrading to Windows 10 Pro. I installed Spider Solitaire and it is exactly the same, including retrieving my history and win percentage. However, I have encountered a bug. Sometimes when using CTRL-Z to undo a move I get an error message: an unexpected null pointer has been encountered. When I click “OK” the game exits and I have no way to complete the game. This has happened several times. This never happened in Windows 7. I was able to undo all the way to the beginning of the game to play over, but I can never do that now. If I try to do it I will eventually get the null pointer error. I tried uninstalling and re-installing, but still get the same error. I do appreciate getting my game back, but it is frustrating to exit a game without winning it. I hate giving up.

      I tried it with a fresh start in case the file got corrupted in downloading. I uninstalled, deleted all installation files, and downloaded the .zip file again. After re-installing Spider Solitaire, I was able to use CTRL-Z to undo all the way from the last deal to the beginning without encountering the null pointer error. This may have fixed my problem. Until now, I had almost always encountered the error after a few undo’s.

          I have since managed to do it numerous times without crashing. I guessed it might have something to do with moving the pointer while using CTRL-Z, so I now move the pointer into the taskbar and take my hand off it while undoing.

      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.

        Look at the other posts I think think may be due to the touch pad, I am going to try disabling it see if that fixes the problem.

    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!!!

    Even on Windows 7, Minesweeper has had so much “chrome” added that its response time bites, and it’s impossible to get a decent score. Will an earlier version, say from Windows 98, work, and where can I get it?

            Unfortunately windows will not let me choose 7-zip to unzip. If I double click on the winaero program, I get the message: the program cannot be found. If I right-click on the program, I can choose to unzip but only with winzip or express-zip.
            I can only find the winaero program in “recent downloads” but not if I go into “this computer – programs”. funny enough the program winzip seems to exist in “programs”.
            I have tried downloading the 7-zip first as 86, the as 64, but without result (did not know which one I should choose)

I have now installed solitaire, spider and hearts. Only hearts is a normal size. The two others are huge – fill the whole page which I do not seem to be able to reduce, but I will keep trying.

    Okay, now what? I worry I’ve downloaded something not on the up and up. I clicked on the first link, the Windows 7 Games archive and got this MEGA download thing. And that’s it. Certainly no Windows 7 games. Have tried twice (incl. signing up for whatever this MEGA thing is). The MEGA thing is asking me to upload or drag anything to its cloud service. There has been no exe file to open, or at least no games.

    Tried the other route (the alt. link) and my anti-virus software prevents the download. Thanks.

    It’s worth noting that the November Windows 10 update (build 10586) will delete these games, so you’ll have to reinstall them again after. This may be the first example of Microsoft using Windows 10 to remove “unauthorised” software, as per the Windows 10 EULA that got coverage on a number of news sites.

      I have had the same thing happen to me twice when I upgraded to the newer Builds of Windows 10 Preview.
      The only thing left on my drive for the games are empty directories except for the games names and a file ending in exe.mui. I did reinstall the games again and they are working again.

    Downloaded your file, but when I try to unzip, and /or run, Norton says has a Trojan: “High Severity, microsoft games patcher v1.2.exe (Trojan.Gen2) detecet by Auto-Protect, Blocked.” and in one case deletes the file(s) and in another attempt, changed the names of the exe files to *.exe.BAK and when i renamed them, removed them.

    Would love to have a clean copy to download and use.

    Thanks.

      See that other anitiviruses report:
      https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/1ec8f732537b2fa2c485b88fc52c11ec42621088bc4605409f30b57e3e8e269f/analysis/

      This file is “patcher”, means it heavily modifies game’s exe files to make it run on Windows 10.
      Viruses have the same behavior, however, they usually inject their body into the file.
      This patcher just modifies the file header and increases the supported Windows version.
      That’s it. It is clean.
      If you are not happy with such behavior of the patcher, then do not install these games. There is not other way to get it working. There is no other “clean” version, it is not possible.

    Microsoft Windows Defender found the following Trojan in the Windows 7 games installer:
    HackTool:Win32/Fgdump is a tool used to write files to a remote computer, in a specified share or directory.
    Be sure to remove the Trojan before installing.

    Games worked well for months then for the past week or so I have been getting : “A network error occurred while communicating with game server. Error Code: 0x80041004”.
    On Windows 7, you waited a while or a few hours and it worked again. No such luck on Windows 10 so far.

    Just wanted to let you know that I upgraded to Windows 10 Build 10586, 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 10240 and games work fine. Curious if you tried on build 11082?

      I figured out why when you install a newer build to Win10 why games say blocked by parental control. Windows points the icons to C:\Windows.old\Program Files\Microsoft Games\ you just need to point the icons back to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\ and all is fine.

    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. Free Cell went first, then Mahjong Titans and Purple Place, and now Minesweeper and Spider Solitaire. I noticed a MS update last night and Minesweeper was not working today. Is it safe to poke the giant?

    Sergey,, Thank you for the help you have given all these people here. I am a computer engineer((retired) and understand the complexities involved in trying to make something work on a system that doesn’t already have it on it. I have learned one thing though. Windows 10 is a piece of SH*T and why Microsoft engineers every came up with it is beyond me. They’re making money hand over fist and still trying to gouge the little guy by taking aways games that everyone loved and putting in advertising as well…..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. That didn’t work as it had deleted files that 7 needed but were not compatible with 10. 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. You just watch Windows 7 climb higher than what it is at the moment (46%)

    Great for the games, thanks. But why do a few simple games take 147 MB? What else is coming down with those games?

      Ask Microsoft why they are so bloated.
      They made them so big, not me.

      You can always use XP versions of the games. And you’re lucky the Windows 7 versions are “only” 147 MB. The Windows 10 versions are insanely bloated as hell. Only Solitaire Suite was 200 MB or more last time I checked. And slow as hell and infested with ads too besides the dumbed down gameplay and removed options.

    Hi Sergey
    Having bought a Win 8.1 Laptop, I have been enjoying W7GFW8 for a couple of years. Thank you so much for supplying this work around to give us our favourite games back.

    I upgraded to Windows 10 Dual Boot just before the deadline and immediately hit the “Spider Null Pointer” issue.

    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.

    Are you any nearer to a fix please?

    KR

    I had Tinker working great in Windows 7 Ultimate (the CAB version that did not need the whole GWL or Games for Windows Live crap installed). Unfortunately in Windows 10 Pro even with Vista SP2 compatibility mode it no longer works. Can you PLEASE get Tinker (non-GWL version) to work in Windows 10 somehow?

      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. They don’t even show on the task manager or anything like that. Are you aware of this issue?

    Thanks a lot!

    the one thing I didn’t like about win 10 is they took my win 7 games away. this worked like a charm until the new anniversary update win 10 build 1607. even when reinstalled the game programs do not load. ms really don’t want us to play these games I guess. can you please tweak it so it will work again?

    many thanks!

      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.

    My computer updated to Windows 10 Anniversary this morning and I found the previous package of games wouldn’t work anymore. Remembered this was the place I got previous version of these games and gratefully found an updated download. Works perfectly now, I just can’t survive without my Freecell. Major thanks to all of you who wrote the new software!!!

    Following the directions at http://winaero.com/blog/get-windows-7-games-for-windows-10/ I downloaded the Zip archive with Games today (9/04/2016) from http://winaero.com/request.php?1836. I unpacked them. The unpacked file never appeared, but nevertheless, installation began and the screens looked just as shown in paragraph 1. and 2. I selected all the games, proceed, and when it was done I clicked “the “Finish” button. The problem is that none of the actual games are anywhere where I can find them.

    In “Program and Functions” there is “Windows 7 Games for Windows 10 and 8” but if I select my choices are to either uninstall or cancel. I see none of the games I expected to be installed anywhere in the list.

    I really loved having the old games in Win10 since I’m not into all the fancy games and I just like to play solitaire once in a while. However, the Win10 Anniversary edition just loaded itself onto my machine and now they don’t work again. Any suggestions?

    Isn’t it a bad idea to replace SLC.dl? It’s to handle software licensing and i imagine it’s not just for keeping windows 7 apps from running. It looks like they completely gutted the functionality of it with some kind of bypass i’m assuming. Might want to find a cleaner way to get it working instead

      It does NOT replace slc.dll.
      Games use their own copy of the file.

    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. I have tried to run with compatibility settings of Windows 7 & Windows 8. I have also ran it with administrator privileges but the game just doesn’t start. Tried running the main exe and not the shortcut, same result, nothing happens. Please advice.

    OS Details:
    Windows 10 Professional
    Version: 1607
    OS Build 14393.187

    Just had to add one more voice of thanks. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come back to this page to keep reinstalling the old games because Microsoft deletes them with every new install and upgrade. Really appreciate what you do.

    Здравствуйте,
    вчера Windows 10 обновился до второго юбилейного, Версия 1607 (Сборка ОС 14939.187). Обновление полностью снесло все старые игры, а после переустановки они перестали запускаться. Привык уже к ним. Можно помочь?
