    Thanks! This program found issues, repaired them and all was good after I restarted the computer. It would of been good for them to mention that restarting was needed but I was at least able to figure that out. Thanks again!

    Workaround if Repair doesn't solve this issue

    I have found that, on my laptop at least, the problem with Solitaire Collection games hanging when invoked was with the Store and Store Broker processes. Running C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe as Administrator, execute the following command file (I call mine KILLSTORE.BAT):

    taskkill /t /f /fi "imagename eq wshost.exe"
    taskkill /t /f /fi "imagename eq wwahost.exe"

    This kills the Store and Store Broker processes. When the Solitaire Collection is started, fresh copies of these processes (and their children, if any) are also started, and the Solitaire Collection runs as one would expect it to run.

    No restart is needed.
