    Possible to transfer preinstalled Windows 7 games?


    Mother just got a new laptop, it has Windows 8, but with their new way of doing preinstalled games (IE... not having any, and having a list to download from) a few games we have on her old Windows 7 laptop aren't available to her, like the version of Solitaire it has and such.

    Would it be feasible to take the preinstalled Windows 7 games and put them on Windows 8... would they still work?

    Short answer, NO. I've seen several posts about the old Solitaire and other games that were on Win 7.

    I have installed the free Microsoft solitaire collection, which is better. There are other free apps on the Windows Store.
