    Where is WordHunt? Or, how to copy Word Hunt from DevPrev to ConsPrev?


    Ok, so I located Word Hunt:

    C:\Program Files\Applications\microsoft.wordhunt_1.0.0.20_neutral_neutral_8wekyb3d8bbwe

    I had to TakeOwnership of the Program Files folder (attached to this post), then I could type in "Applications".


    Back to the issue...I see Word Hunt as pinned to the Metro desktop, but I can't find out how items are pinned.

    And in the C:\Program Files\Applications\microsoft.wordhunt_1.0.0.20_neutral_neutral_8wekyb3d8bbwe folder, there is a "default.htm", which I *assume* is what is run on the pinned icon on the Metro desktop?


    Can someone help me with this? I want/need WordHunt on CTP! My daughter is interested in PCs now and I want to continue this!

    Thanks!

    Word Hunt has been superceded by Wordament, a similar Boggle-like game.

    Don't want that game. No Unlimited play, only Timed play, have to wait 45sec between games, my kids hate it.

    The original one had large letters, unlimited play, and other stuff.

    So, how can I get it to work? It's sitting in this folder in the Dev Preview:
    C:\Program Files\Applications\microsoft.wordhunt_1.0.0.20_neutral_neutral_8wekyb3d8bbwe
