Internet Backgammon (solved)

Hi all,

I don't know if this goes here on gaming, sorry If it should go in another section.
Since I've been using windows 7 on my desktop for quite a while I decided it was time to install it on my acer aspire one netbook so I made a copy with v-lite but among many things I didn't include was the games section. It's been 3 weeks since I installed windows 7 and I miss the backgammon game, since I already installed many programs I don't want to make another copy of 7 this time including the games.

Is there any way to install the backgammon game without the need to install windows 7 again?

Thanks for your help guys.

If you have thw win 7 dvd you can mount it with an app like powerISO. the games are on the compressed iso image. I dont have a win 7 dvd to find where right now but they are there and may run just by coping them to the desktop. It cant hurt to try.

Thanks man, I will try it when I get home and I'll post back.

Edit:

Yep, I only had to copy the C:\program files\microsoft games folder from my desktop to my netbook and now I have the games, I never thought it was gonna be that easy.

Thanks a million

I'm wondering who the idiot was at Microsoft that changed the game. While your playing and the other player leaves you automatically start playing with the computer and it's a hopeless game as the computer does nothing but hit. The game can go one for half an hour and if you resign or stop the...

it appears to me that these games are rigged. no matter how well i play, and whether i am ahead in the game or not, my opponent continually rallies to win the game, rolling many more doublesthan i do, and rolling just the right combination of die at just the right time to hit my men and send...
