Windows 7 games file location

windows 7

On Windows XP, the FreeCell executable was located in the X:\WINDOWS\System32\ folder, named freecell.exe. Where can I find the game files in the case of Windows 7, provided that the game is playable on the current Windows 7 installation and is visible through the Games Explorer?

Best Answer

Freecell, Hearts, etc. are located in the appropriate subfolders under X:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\ (although I've heard others say they're still in System32). Note that these are special executables with .mui companion files, and won't work on earlier versions of Windows.
