    Old games gone


    I run Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) version upgrade 1903.
    I upgraded to 1903 a couple of days ago and since then my favourite games have disappeared. They were:
    Classic FreeCell
    Classic Hearts
    Simple Solitaire
    They are the old Win 7 Home editions, which I found on the net when I first upgraded to Windows 10, and worked perfectly.
    They are still in my program files but won't open. I also have a file called "unwin7games" but am not sure if it's safe to open or if it would work if I did.
    Is there any way to get my favourites back - or download them again? I think something must be missing since the upgrade.
    Thanks for any help. I'll be back tomorrow to check for any answers.

    :)

  2. Wanting to run old games

    Hi Jameson,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to refer the below link and check the compatibility of the game with Windows 10.

    Explore Windows 10 OS, Computers, Apps, & More | Microsoft

    You may also try installing the game in compatibility mode.
    Follow these steps to install the game software in compatibility mode and check if that helps.


          • Right-click on the game setup file and click on
            ‘properties’.

          • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box
            ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to get in touch with the game manufacturer if it’s specific to that particular game.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

    When I updated to windows 10 my old 101 puzzle and logic games are not working

    Hello,

    I appreciate if you could answer a
    few questions to narrow down the issue and to provide you better assistance.

    • How did you installed these games on your Computer? Is it through CD/DVD or Windows Store?
    • When you say, "old 101 puzzle" are you referring to Microsoft Jigsaw puzzles?

    As you have already tried different troubleshooting steps with no avail, I suggest you to contact the game manufacturer regarding this matter for assistance and check if this helps.

    Write to us with the above information and status of the issue to assist you further.

    Thank You.
