    spider solitare (xp pro sp3)

    My spider solitare and solitare have been removed from my computer. How do I reload those games. I went to add/remove programs and add components but could not get them loaded from there.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    You should be able to reinstall them from there:
    - Start the Control Panel.
    - Click Add or Remove Programs.
    - Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
    - Click on Accessories and Utilities (take care not to clear the check box).
    - Click Details...
    - Select Games and make sure that its check box is ticked.
    - Click Details...
    - Tick the check boxes for the games that you want to be available.
    - Click OK to return to the Accessories and Utilities dialog.
    - Click OK to return to the Windows Components Wizard.
    - Click Next > and follow the instructions. Have your Windows CD at hand.

    I reinstalled using your instructions. The boxes were checked, yet solitare games were not installed. When I looked at games under programs, solitare was not listed. I was never asked for the cd, but the dialog box said everything was installed. What else can I try?

    Have you checked whethet the games are really absent? Perhaps just the shortcuts in the Start menu have been removed. Solitaire is C:WindowsSystem32Sol.exe, and Spider Solitaire is C:WindowsSystem32Spider.exe. If these are still present, you can create new shortcuts.

    I was able to reinstall. The games were not there. I went to add components and uninstalled all games. Then I restarted the computer and went back to add components and checked all the games. I was then asked for the cd and now everything works.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Great - that was going to be my next suggestion; I'm glad the problem is solved.
