I think you only stated how to keep the windows 7 games running in windows 8. If you bought a new computer with windows 8 on it then you don't get the games in the first place. That's my predicament. How do I get the games in the first place. Please post if you have a solution.
Thanks

Cornelius asked the question I want to ask here but I don't see an answer, so I have to assume it can't be done. My computer crashed and I had to buy a new one like Cornelius so that option is out but I do have my old windows 7 system disk can I extract it from that?
