    Ported XP-Space Cadet to Windows 8


    Click image for larger version

    I have ported Space Cadet from Windows XP Home Premium to Windows 8 Professorial.
    Due to the copyright on MS, I cannot share a download link. If you'd like to do it yourselves, move the Pinball folder from C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball to an external drive and run E:\Pinball\pinball.exe

    Cool, huh?

    I followed your idea and copied it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games which is where the Microsft Games for Windows 8 v1.2 package put all the games from Windows 7. Works great from there too.

    All (missing) games from Win7 and XP 64 work fine!
