    Copy freecell plus card.dll from shell 32 in windows folder from your xp computer and put on your 8.1 computer. create a shortcut on your desktop to the stored location and away you go.

    This is B.S…. that is, having to setup a Microsoft account to download apps from the Microsoft store. I ain't going to do it!

    Hi.  I have my old computer right here I put that .dll file on a stick and put it in my new Windows 8.1 laptop and it won't open.   So I haven't gone away what did I do wrong?

    Most people want the original games.  So the answer go to the Store is just like Windows 8 it sucks.

    As far as I can see with 8.1, internet access of some kind is required to play these games.  Not true with these games in Windows 7.  I spend 5 to 6 months per year in the USA where internet is limited or non-existent.
