Windows 7: Missing my regular standard Games

11 Feb 2009   #1

Missing my regular standard Games

I went from Windows seven beta 7000 32 bit which had all the regular WIndows Vista style games such Ches, Solitaire and Spider Solitaire. I realized that my lap top would actually handle the 64 bit version so I installed it as a clean install. Now in game explorer I only have links for on line games and nothing else. Very weird!! Any ideas where I could get these back onto my current install without having to go through a brand new install?

You can probably install the games from Add/Remove Programs in the control panel. Youll need the Install disc to do so.

Hey jtoolman,

Its really easy to fix I had the same problem.

Go to control panel, then add remove programs.
On the left side is "Turn Windows features on and off" games is one of then. Click it on.

Let it run its course and you have your games
