    Hey Jeff,

    I got the archive that Jimbo mentioned and it's alright: already patched and safe.
    Don't get the patch because it's not needed.

    About screenshot: That's not a virus it's just (flagged) an alert because the program can modify other exe's/binary's.
    Clean your temp files and delete the patch, delete quarantine... just to calm the antivirus down.

    EDIT: that patch got detected here too and then I let it run in a VM to see what it does... If you have the initial Win7 games, it makes them work on Win8.
    But as I said, you don't need it just the archive.

    Good luck

    OK, Hopachi,

    will retry to arrange this.

    But it still is strange that on 1 computer it works without having to do anything else then follow the instructions of Calico and that puzzels me.

    Here is the link for information on the Install file which does all the manual work for you. The download link is just above the last picture.

    Thanks Jim,

    that was the site Jimbo45 talked about.

    Thanks to all who tried to help/helped. Expecially Jimbo who got me true the latest steps.

    So it really works and my wife is happy.

    Jeff

    PS

    Still it would be nice to know why 1 computer X64 did not need the patch. One X86 computer neither.

    The patch worked when copying the games/DLL to the Program Files X86, not when doing so to the Program Files X64.

    Correction it was possible in Program Files X64, my bad
