    Thanks for the help.

    1 more Question, if I want to have spades in win7 run on win8.1 Pro upgrade x64 - is there a way to copy my files from win7 HoPrem to win8.1-upgrade? It is a dual boot system.

    Thanks again for your help.

    You're most welcome.

    The Spades question would be best to ask in a new thread to get the best help with it.
