Hi Drewmorgan,



Thank you for posting your question in Microsoft Community forums.



From your post it appears that you are unable to play any built-in games.



Are you able to play other games on your Windows 7 computer?




Let's try these steps:



Method 1:


You may try launching the games in a clean boot state and check if it works:


Note: Reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting is done. Refer step 3.

To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

Method 2:


Try launching the game from the following location

C:Program Files/Microsoft Games/Solitaire/Solitaire.exe

Right click on the Solitaire.exe file and click “Run as Administrator”.


Please get back with the issue status so that we can help you further.
