Games for Windows 7 Professional

I am trying to find the old windows games (minesweeper, solitaire, etc) in this new version but can't seem to find it or anywhere that I can download it for this. Is there any way to get them on the Professional version?

in 7 pro, you have to manually enable them via "Add/Remove windows Components".
just check the box that says "games", hit ok, and you'll probably have to reboot after the install.

This reminds me of the search puppy in Windows XP Professional. MS seems to be making an effort to make professional, professional this time around. Then again, as soon as I didn't see Solitaire, I turned on Games in Windows Features.
