Original Solitaire

  happyhotspur 18:30 09 Dec 2010

My new laptop running windows 7 did not have any games preloaded on it. I have been trying to find the original Solitaire to download but although trying several websites I cannot seem to find a decent download where I can just play solitaire without going on line.

Does anybody know how to get the original one downloaded to my hard drive

Assume you have the pro version

With the Professional Edition they're not installed by default. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off. From there you can install them.

If you don't mind paying $19.95 there's an excellent set of solitaires here

I've had it for ages and its very good. There's a 30day trial period if you want to try it out first.

They also have some excellent Mahjong games which you can use for free albeit with an occasional 'Nag' screen.

I play spider solitaire at level 3 and it does your head in. It is very addictive.
