[AddOn] Windows Vista Games AIO (ported to XP)

Recommended Posts

I currently have 7 games that can run under Windows XP. If you do know how to patch vista RTM games, I can make them as addons.

A small explanation: All games are in English language. Game exe's are all version These games don't run in Vmware and onboard vga cards. You need a 3d supported graphics card.

I didnt patch them, also dont know which vista build they are from (Maybe build 52XX) . They are just made an addon by me. But as far as I understand, these games are patched by Rafael & ZoRoNaX. So, credits go them about game files.

As all of you know, Minesweeper and Shanghai games wouldnt run because of some errors we dont know. Users ddSHADOW and orcoxp came with an idea, using a cmd file. That cmd file first will delete error making files, then will launch the game. And, I used that cmd file for both Minesweeper and Shanghai games. When you click their shortcuts in "Start Menu/Vista Games", first cmd file will launch, you will see it pop-up in a second then disappear, then the game will start. Because of this error, no statistics are shown, also no settings are saved.

Also, I got Purble Place game from orcoxp's addon. Thanks for sharing.

And about the addons. They wont be shown in "Add/Remove Programs" unless you select "Show Updates" thing on top.

Take a look: vistagames78gm.png

All addons are uninstallable. These 7 addons are made to run with Main Addon. Main addon includes runtime file. When you will uninstall all, remove Main addon last. Main addon will delete shortcut dir (Start Menu\Vista Games), and the dll file. It will remove "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft Games" directory, that game files creates, as well.

Great work as usual :thumbsup_anim:

I downloaded Minesweeper to integrate with rick's Hold 'Em addon and an Inkball addon I have been merging ...

just one little problem ...... the Minesweeper addon does not contain "Vista.Emulation.dll" so running the game failed .... no worries I downloaded that dll and fixed.

I know that dll is in the AIO package ... but just wanted you to know for anybody downloading

only Minesweeper.

Many thanks :rolleyes:

btw ... the MCE addon that u deleted was the most innovative MCE addon I have seen, and had the pleasure to install

Thanks for your post my friend :)

The seperate addons require base addon to be installed, you can find in first post ;) Vista.Emulation.dll is in that addon.

The mce addon of mine was nice but ricks addon is the most complete solution for mce. And i couldnt have enough time to work and updatre it, so i decided to delete. My apologies :(

I put my specs on and see I missed the base addon :rolleyes: lol

No apologies needed for MCE addon ... I still use it with a couple of updates added to svcpack folder and works great every time.

thanks buddy :thumbsup_anim:

I search in Vista BETA for these games and all games are from Vista BETA 2 (Longhorn) 6.0.5231

P.S. if you want update your card games like solitaire etc, you can look here:
