    Microsoft Solitaire Collections a No-Go


    Just had a client's PC set was still on 8 and having problems. (Really???)
    Hadn't worked on 8 or 8.1 in a while and took me a bit to find the 8.1 upgrade was through the Store.
    Owners are older couple who only do the basics, email, reservations, a little shopping and GAMES, of which Solitaire is daily pastime.
    I finally managed to open the Store, after cmd fix, and installed the MS Solitaire Collection.
    Now it opens nicely to that Blue Screen with "Microsoft Solitaire Collection" but that's as far as it goes. It minimizes down to the Task Bar and sits there.
    I see a million posts on a number of sites but anything I tried doesn't work.
    Anyone got a fix for this?
    (Forgot how much I didn't like 8. Fortunately, don't have many clients with it.)

    Did a batch more of 8.1 updates and OK now.
    Would have liked to thank Brink if he helped like he does on 7, 8, 10.
    Shawn, do you do Mac and Linux also?
