For users with Windows 7 Ultimate, Professional, or Enterprise, you can install XP Mode and use the games.

While most users are enjoying the Windows 7 experience and all the new features and abilities it has there are some that prefer the look of the games from Windows XP. While the functionality and game play has not changed the look has. For those of you that prefer the style of the XP versions of the Windows games on your Windows 7 PC, here are instructions to help you getting the XP versions up and running.

**You need to have a valid copy of Windows XP**

In Windows XP, use Windows explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32. **Note that the Windows folder and System 32 folder will hide the contents of the folder by default. This is because there are system files in these locations and you should take care when navigating in these folders.** Copy the following files to a USB memory stick, or CD (whatever means you have to move files)
cards.dll
freecell.exe
mshearts.exe
sol.exe
spider.chm
spider.exe
spider.hlp
winmine.exe


Then on your Windows 7 PC, create a folder (do not put it in the Windows\system32 folder) and paste those files into the folder. Now you can either open the folder and launch games from there, or create shortcuts to the games and place them on your desktop.

For the Pinball game, it has its own folder located at C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball. You can copy the entire Pinball folder and then move it to your Windows 7 PC. **Do not put it in the C:\Program Files\Windows NT folder.** You should put it in the same folder with the card games (if you moved some of those).

Win7 comes with solitaire. But if you insist you can try copying it, and it's support files from system32 and see if it will work.
