Windows 7: Getting W7 games to work in W8

Getting W7 games to work in W8

There used to be a patch that enabled the Windows 7 stock games to work in W8. I'd say that was less than a year ago. It worked for my first W8 pc.

I just tried that on a new W8 install of mine and it didn't work this time.

Has anyone visited this?

Is there another work-around?

I love my Hearts and Spider Solitaire.

Now I know I don't have a soultion but I believe this question would be better asked at the windows 8 forums. You would be more likely to get help there since users on that forum own windows 8 them selves. Anyways I hope you're able to resolve your issue.
