    Last year I had help from members to get Windows 7 games to play when I upgraded to Windows 10. Yesterday, I updated to Windows 10 Creator and to my dismay seem to have lost the Windows 7 games. I went to the Winaero site and cannot see the link now to download this file. Can anyone help me please - in simple terms!

    They do seem to have disappeared. Being paranoid I have been keeping the package in my Onedrive as I have had to reload on every insider build. The package is about 230Mb.



    You don't still have your original W7 install CD? You could get them from there I think.

    It is still there ! http://winaero.com/blog/get-windows-7-games-for-windows-10/

    Hidden under Blog which is why I couldn't find it. Winaero doesn't have a search

    However I think you will also need a file msgames_win8_x64.msi (90,392 Kb 04 August 2015) This used to still be in W10 but disappeared in the anniversary update.

    Thank You Tim ! :)

    I used your link to download “ Windows 7 games for Windows 10 ” and installed the app on my Windows 10 1703.
    It's working just fine !
    And there was no need for the « msgames_win8_x64.msi ».

    Thanks ! :)

    Regards ;) JAY B.

    That means you may already have that MSI. When Fall Creators arrives you may need to re-install the games and even to get that msi.

    Hi,

    I downloaded the « msgames_win8_x64.msi », just in case I would need it in a near future ! :D
    Microsoft is full of surprise !

    Bye ;)
