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.

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 ;)

I am very pleased with this program...my prob is that I deleted it to clean up my computer with the plan to immediately reinstall it. It installs but a game will not come up when I click on its icon (the only games I kept were solitaire and minesweeper). I am imagining a conflict somewhere. I looked through my program files and couldn't find any other game programs. Any tips? PS I am on a tower.

After a full delete of the old games I found that I needed the Win7Games......exe from Winaero and another file called msgames_win8_x64.msi. This latter file appears to survive new major builds unlike the Win7Games...file.
