Spider Solitaire - XP Version Works

Hi all
Fairly trivial post but I know people still like playing these Windows games.

This isn't really "Gaming" as it's just a post about those little card games included with Windows.

I quite like Spider Solitaire but I HATED the card designs in the VISTA and Windows 7 versions.

Howver the OLD XP version (with the much nicer typical Card deck pictures) works fine.

Just copy spider.exe from your XP system (it's in Windows==>system32) to any old directory and you can run it from there -- no extra DLL's needed.

Here's the difference between the Old and New

(image enc) Top one is OLD deck (from XP) bottom is the Windows 7 version

BTW It's quite addictive if you've got some minutes to spare or are getting bored at work waiting for a process to finish etc etc.

Cheers
jimbo

Jimbo -

The Win 7 solitaire games (spider and regular) give you the option to use the classic deck.

My eyes are old and tired but to me the classic deck in 7 looks the same as XP.
But then again a lot of things look the same to me after

That's why I failed to notice the original post was back in 2009.

You can also play Pinball from Windows XP on Windows 7... Good times, its a great game and a classic, shouldn't have been removed.

Hoh wow.

Regarding this category, also, to whoever remebers SkiFree from 95, it works perfectly in a window. But that's the way it was too. Y'know, it's that game where you ski down a nasty slope with many jumps. Then Bigfoot will get you. The author has it available at his site.

And now, my request, where is Windows XP 3D Pinball ? Will it perform on Windows 7 ? Such a magnificent looking and playing game.

EDIT: I did find it and it plays just swell. But there is one small problem. And I even remember this on XP. I check in Music, but it won't play. So then I'm forced to go to the folder and play PINBALL.MID

SkiFree... Yes, I played that on Windows 2000... That was a hard game for me lol. Pinball works fine in Windows 7, just have to get it off the internet.
