XP Games on 7

A friend asked if his XP games (Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Hearts, Freecell, Minesweeper & 3D Pinball) run fine on 7? I know I just need to copy the files from his comfuser (XP Pro) to mine (7 Pro), but can anyone tell me which (besides the .exe's) I need?

You already have all these games (and some more) on your Windows 7 system Just go to Control Panel, then Programs and Features, then click on Turn Windows features on or off and then tick the checkbox next to Games. Click OK and there you go!

I know I have these on my comfuser (except 3D Pinball), but he wants to know how to copy over the XP versions to play on 7, some play/look just a bit different & he likes them.

I did copy over Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Hearts, Freecell, Minesweeper, 3D Pinball (whole folder) & cards.dll; all play w/o problems. Thanks for responing.
