    I can't find the games on Vista as above which are online (some) and very
    popular on XP. These games available on XP are as follows: Free Cell,
    Hearts, Internet Backgammon, Internet Checkers, Internet Hearts, Internet
    Reversi, Internet Spades, Minesweeper, Pinball, Solitaire, Spider Solitaire.
    It is possible for me to copy from XP C:\ Program Files\ "MSN Gaming
    Zone\Windows\numerous games .exe file" and run on Vista? If not is it
    possible to purchase this game set for Vista and use as on XP?
    Thanks for your help.

  2. What Vista version are you using? I have Vista Ultimate and it comes with
    all these games you mentioned. I am pretty sure that Vista Home Premium and
    up have them also.

    If you're running Vista Business or Enterprise, the games by default are not

    Find Programs and Features in Control Panel
    Select Add Windows Features on the left
    Check Games
    Click OK

    Search the start menu for Games Explorer, you'll have to put a shortcut to
    it somewhere on your desktop or somewhere.

    Also if you search Google for any of those games you'll find like a ton of
    sites that offer free versions of these applications. I think you can login
    to Microsoft Zone online and play all those games as well, they don't call
    them casual for nothing. (Casual = More common than rocks)

    I believe Chris is correct; the XP internet-games are not in Vista

    If they are, someone tell us where

    If they aren't, can they be made available and how

    Neil -

    There are five XP games that allow a user to play the games online with
    other users. Those five games do not appear to have been ported over to
    Vista in any of its 'flavors.'

    Anyone, anyone...
