Windows 7: Games transfer from 7 to 7-PRO

Games transfer from 7 to 7-PRO

After installing WIN7-PRO, I could not find the normal games like freecell, solitaire etc. I copied the Games folder from another WIN7 PC that I have and they appear in the All Programs list on the WIN7-PRO laptop, but they will not start. Any clues??

Check whether Games are checked in Windows Features in the Control Panel.

Go to Windows Features and make sure "games" is check marked.

Windows Features - Turn On or Off

EDIT: OK, Keith. I told you about slowing down on the keyboard!
