I have been playing Bridge on MSN.Games for a long time but, suddenly, I am
stuck on the "Download & install latest version" page. It's telling me
"Sorry, we (I suppose Microsoft) were unable to install your game" - follow
the instructions below. Have followed all instructions to no avail.- I can
not play Bridge and it's driving me crazy! Anybody out there in cyberspace
who is willing to help and restore my sanity?
I have Windows XP with Service Pack 2

There's a specific newsgroup you can use for MSN Gaming Zone.

The Zone newsgroups are listed in the left side of this "Community
Newsgroups" windows under " PC Games" > "Game Zone"
http://support.microsoft.com/newsgroups/newsReader.aspx...

However, while you're here... ;-)

Which ports to open? http://mvps.org/nibblesnbits/ports.html
