    Hey Pops, I'm not sure why you are having this problem. I did nothing special, just went to WindowsApps and clicked it to open it. I can also open all the sub folders.

    Now I have previously used GrantAdminFullControl, which is similar to Take ownership on steroids. Perhaps this is what allows me to do this.

    I've not been here for a while.......

    Ya mean there is still someone out there who doesn't know how to play XP-Solitaire in windows 8?

    The entire XP game pack, along with cards.dll is available here:'
    https://www.box.com/s/aluoi4e08s9b6eilfoqn

    Download that file, then Unzip the files to the root directory of Windows 8, and then make a shortcut to your favorite card game to the Desktop.
    Enjoy!

    That download was updated today and the name and contents ('AVG Removers' .exes) does not sound like a set of Microsoft games. Could you verify that it's still what you think it is?

    1) Copy the Microsoft Games folder from Win 7 Program Files folder to the Program Files Folder in Win 8 CP. Copy the entire folder. If you have a 32 Bit system you would copy the Microsoft Games folder from Program Files (x86). If you have a 64 Bit system you would copy the Microsoft Games folder from Program Files.

    2) Copy 'cardgames.dll' from C, windows, system32

    3) Paste the .dll directly into each of these folders you have created in Win 8 CP: Free Cell, Hearts, Solitaire, Spyder Solitaire. I have shown the Free Cell folder below. The other 3 folders are similar.

    Now just apply this patch: Sorry, the patch is no longer available. This link is broken so I have removed it. It only worked during the beta test period. Now that there are Free Cell and other Solitaire games available from the Win 8 App Store, these are no longer necessary.

    That's it. It really works. I'm playing the Free Cell now.
    Hello Medico,
    Searching for a 64bit Freecell, I tried your links in the above email and they both defaulted to an advert for MaaS360. Is this an intentional hijack or what?
    Please post the link again.
    Thanks,
    Graeme.
