I have installed Windows 8.1 on my parents PC and now they told me that Spider Solitaire isn't there anymore.

I have downloaded the Spider Solitaire Collection, but apparently the original Windows 7 version was better.

 

Is there a way to download and install this Win7 version and install it on Windows 8.1?

And if so, where can I download that particular Spider Solitaire?

You can probably copy it from a Windows 7 installation. It's called "spider.exe".

All of the solitaire versions are available in the Windows Store solitaire collection but it has ads if you don't pay a "rental" fee for it.

There is a patch necessary to make it work, I'm not sure if it's available anymore but someone made it for all of the win7 games when windows 8 first came out.  I'll try to see if I can find it and I'll post up a link for you.

 

EDIT: Here you go, patch the win 7 game exes with this and they will run just fine on Windows 8/8.1

Thx.
Unfortunately I haven't have a running Win 7 (64 bit) environment anymore. So how do I get these files!

The installed Win 8.1 is also 64 bit.
