    Spider Solitaire - "Unexpected Null Pointer Encountered"


    I have recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, and have successfully installed previous Windows 7 games, which seem to function without problems. However Spider Solitaire often returns message "Unexpected Null Pointer Encountered", usually on CTRL Z (to undo last move), and game is aborted.
    How can this problem be resolved ?
    Appreciate any help
    Regards
    Dave

    Windows 10 - Unexpected null pointer was encountered -Solitaire and Spider Solitaire

    Since upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I intermittently receive message "Fatal Error - Unexpected null pointer was encountered" on Solitaire and Spider Solitaire, and the program terminates.

    This appears to occur when selecting Undo Move (CTRL Z), but does not occur all the time

    Could somebody please provide a solution to this?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for your response.

    Neither Solitaire nor Spider Solitaire are listed in the "Uninstall or Change Program" list, or in "Turn Windows Features On/Off" list.

    How can I un-install them?

    Same problem with Klondike version of the Windows 7 games. I have a new laptop that came with windows 10 already on it. Happens same way, can use control Z many times, but every once in awhile will give the "Unexpected Null Pointer Encountered". Have not been able to detect a pattern.
