Windows 7: Across the partition

Across the partition

Hi.
I imagine this question has already been asked but I've looked and can't find it.
I'm dual booting Vista x64 and W7 7100 x64.
All my games are in the Vista install (same HDD). Do I have to install them in W7 to play them?

Thanks, John

That does not work for every game, windows 7 most likely will need additional components ie: latest directx, msxml 4.0 for some older games, anticheat software, and possibly registry entries, saved games/profiles need to be moved over etc. So give it a try see what works and adjust from there.
