    Windows 7 Classic games (Spider Solitaire etc) anybody installed yet

    Hi all

    I like the Windows "Classic games" that come with windows such as Spider Solitaire etc.

    Has anybody got the ones from W7 to work on W8 yet.

    I managed to get them to work on W2008 Server but not on W8. (Note these are the standard games packaged with Windows -- not Games that people would buy so I've posted the question here rather than in the gaming Forum.

    I'm looking for that also. Someone posted "Chess Titans for Windows 8", but while it works, it's either a remake or heavily modded version.
