Vista Busines games stopped working
All of a sudden I cannot execute Freecell and Solitare. I double click in
their icons, get a brief wait indicator, then that's it. I am back to where I
started.

I went into the control panel then programs & features and turned games off
and back on. That had no effect. I also tried rebooting. Your help is
appreciated.

RE: Vista Busines games stopped working
You can try the system restore feature and attempt to get them to work again.

Click on Start Pearl. In the start search box type system restore and press
enter. Follow the on screen prompts to pick a time when those games were
working.

This may or may not clear it up.

I also recommend that you install all critical and optional updates for your
system to keep things working in tip top shape.

Hope this helps some and good luck getting them to work!

Hey Roger,

Load up services.msc, set the SL UI service and the software licensing
service to Automatic, stop and restart them both.

Hope that works.
