Hi there

Anybody got these to work on W8 yet

There's a horrible built in XBOX version for one form of Solitaire but I like the old XP / W7 classic games when I've a few minutes spare -- Hearts or Spider Solitaire with the 4 suit option are great time wasters !!!!

Cheers

Unfortunately no. But the XP versions of all of the Windows games will work on Windows 8. Kind of disappointing though not to be able to play the new versions. Microsoft should include them in the final product.

For that matter, why did they eliminate Inkball from Windows 7. I put it in myself, but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't , sigh.
