    Old Brain needs young info


    OK don't laugh, I am a 74 year old with a reasonable grip on this electronic age,,,,,,, I think!
    Now my brand new Windows 8 (3 weeks old), has a enormous amount of Mah-jong games on it, and my wife would like to have all that on her Windows 7 laptop.

    SO::

    A. We are both online, can I transfer the Mah-jong direct?................How?

    B. Can somebody tell me in Kindergarten language, how to download it onto a memory sick and install it direct from the memory stick.

    Thanks Mate for the super quick reply.
    I just told the boss, can't do that unless you make that giant leap for mankind and go to windows 8.

    She said YUK, so problem solved.
    Cheers...Simmo,.

    No mate, after 54 years of marriage YUK means " Try again ", or make your own breakfast.

    What might work, if you want to experiment, is using PC Mover from LapLink. It is able to migrate apps from one PC to another.

    You would have to buy it to try it out, and it might not work, but it's the only app left (as far as I know) that is able to migrate apps from one PC to another. There used to be a better one, AlohaBob PC Relocator, but MS bought them out -- and then killed the product.

    On Win7, you cannot install Win8 Apps from the Store.

    Unless you make the "giant leap" to 8, you can install Win8 as a virtual machine on Win7:
    VMware Player - Install Windows 8

    It's a bit of a hassle to begin with but once you get it working, it will allow you to open Win8 in a window on Win7 or go fullscreen and there run your apps...

    Cheers!

    I always use "app" and "program" interchangeably. I better get with the program (as they used to say in 1976)

    um if you actually had purchased the game on a cdrom or dvd you could probably install it on whatever computer you wanted too.

"Bright Young Lad" Award in General Support
Today's Bright Young Lad Award goes to me. I had to set up my beloved Windows 8 so that I could turn it off. After months of use, I noticed today that the top right corner of my keyboard has three buttons: "Power," "Sleep," and "Wake." Most keyboards do not have these three buttons.
