    Mods, if this isn't the right place for this post, then please move it.

    Various past versions of Windows has included a pinball game and yet this game doesn't seem to have migrated to Win 7, and if it has, I can't find it. Does anyone know what happened to it and whether or not there is a version that runs in Windows 7. I enjoyed the game, the action, the graphics, the competition...it was a great way to waste a few minutes or much more, when your brain was fried from its normal daily activities, and besides that it was fun to play. Any thoughts or insight is graciously appreciated. Thanks.

    You are correct. Pinball did not make it to Windows 7. If you have access to an XP machine just copy the C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball folder to your Win7 machine.

    My XP machines are gone, so is there somewhere else to find it and if so, where would I put it on my Win 7 machine? Thanks.

    I do not know where you could find it. Sorry.

    If you are able to find it you can copy the folder anywhere on your Windows 7 PC where you have permissions. I just copied it to Downloads and double clicked Pinball.exe to run it.

    Just copy the whole folder wherever you want. Then you can just double click pinball.exe to run. You can make a shortcut on your desktop if you care to.

    Thank you Joe, It's not that important. I've got other games I can play.
