This may be something very simple but haven’t gotten anywhere w/ it yet.
Someone I work w/ gave me Windows 7 Professional x64 that we use for work, and he said it was updated, which it is to some extent.
He used r7 lite x64 to integrate the updates, and it looks to me he decided to take the games out that come integrated w/ Windows; solitaire, free cell, etc.
I went to programs & features, turn windows features on & off, you see games w/ the checkbox & at least I think you should be able to just check the box and the games install…not on this occasion.
I get an error message saying an error has occurred not all of the features were successfully installed. I’ve included a screen shot of the error message.
I’ve logged in w/ the administrator account to try the same w/ the games deal, same results w/ same error message.
I’ve tried to add the games in safe mode logged in as administrator, same message.
There is no Microsoft Games folder, but I’ve tried to manually copy over the Microsoft games folder from a PC that had the games to start w/, never started the games.
Just to see if it made a difference I added the games w/ the internet games unchecked, didn’t make a difference. There may be a way to add the games from the DVD but haven’t found that option.
I’ve made all the updates to Windows 7 if that makes a difference. I had to use the system update readiness tool to successfully install SP1.
I’ve used the same windows 7 DVD installing it on a laptop just to see if there were anything particular about the PC I was using, but still get the same message.
I’ve been surfing the internet & experts exchange but haven’t found anything to fix this yet. There’s been a lot of mentions about using SFC, & I’ve tried that and there are errors that I’ve attached as CBS.txt; that is a very big file though. If the SFC says there’s too much messed up even if we fix the games the PC itself not be that stable.
I’m running out of ideas. Maybe this is something in the group/user policy or the registry?
I hope & would think getting the games back won’t require me to get the original Windows 64 DVD & start from scratch.
