    It does not work with creators update, the downloaded file is the old one, which worked on past uptates, but does not work on creators update. The pack installs, but clicking on a game does nothing.

        My build is 15063.rs2_release.170317-1834 (15063.13 like yours). I tried all, like cleaning old files, etc.

          I just checked everything once again.
          All games work.
          My setup is: Clean install, Defender is enabled, UAC is enabled.
          Maybe it is something specific to your setup.

            It should be something specific then.
            When i click on a game the circle above the mouse appears and start running, as if the application started, but nothing happen, no game on screen, no game on task manager either.
            I give up, thanks for your patience.

            I found that I had to uninstall the games before updating to Creators Update.
            After that, all games worked.

      In Windows 10 after the Creator’s Update there seems to be a problem with some DirectX 9 based applications. There are two options to allow this game package to work:

      1. Copy the file d3d9.dll from your Windows/System32 folder into each folder that contains the .exe file of the game you want to play (for example: Program Files\Microsoft Games\Minesweeper if you want to play Minsweeper).
      2. Find the application that breaks DirectX 9 and close it (might need to restart without the application running on startup). In my case it was RiverTunerStatisticsServer (v. 6.6.0.9970) that comes bundled with MSI Afterburner.

          I see. But Reversi wasn’t included in Windows 7 Game set. You must be installed it separately.

            Yes, from a Romanian developer. I believe you have mentioned him before. If you want I can email you the link. I have it in onedrive. I can’t get it to run on anything above 7. It includes all in Gaming Zone.

    Thank you! You guys rock! It works like a charm for me (64-bit Win Pro 10, just got the Creators Update so I did a search to update my favorite Win7 games and came up with this site). Thumbs up!
