    Update 1:
    I did important update to all REG files...
    ...pls redownload
    ...still no luck in W8

    EDIT:
    Update 2:
    For some reason in x64 OS games don't look in Wow6432Node even the Zone Client is x32.
    Fixed with x64_x32.reg files
    in x32 OS use x32.reg
    in x64 OS use x64_x32.reg

    In W7 it is working without any issue.
    Best I can recommend is to start new W7 x64 VM (in VMware Workstation) and proceed there right according my how-to.txt.
    Then you can reveal what mistake you did in your main OS, when you were importing the ripped pack.

    Running a reg in Safe Mode shouldn't be the actual solution. Problem is elsewhere.

    Well, I didn't write there, what I thought is obvious. :)

    1. Run File Manager (like Ghister Total Commander) in elevated mode for file replacement.
    2. If some DLL or EXEs are in use, run some advanced Task Manager (like Sysinternals Process Explorer), search for those files and kill those processes, which use them. Then repeat file replacement. If you have to terminate explorer.exe, re-run it after replacement, if it doesn't autostart.
    3. After importing registry files always check, that those entries were really added. Always import REG by running Registry Editor and selecting import from menu, because you can have broken REG file association.
    ...

    BTW: I still hope, that professional file patchers like Woot or Jan will look on this issue to enable these games for W8-x.

    Hi, do you still have these files? I am keen to play these games too but the dropbox links aren't working. I'm running Windows 8.1 x64

    Best wishes

    NVM I managed to get the files and reg settings from an XP64 install and adapt them. Works fine with win 8.1 so far, hopefully the problem was only with win 8.0 or x86. Best wishes Jay

    It still doesn't work for me in W8-1, please copy-paste the reg here for easy comparison...

    ...or even better - pack all of you have ripped to rar/zip (files and reg entries) and attach it here or any file sharing service...

    I also would like to play Internet Reversi on W10.
    All the other provided games work in W7 -64 bit, W-8.1 64 bits and W10 64.
    I tried to manually add Reversi file ( exe+dll+help) to W7 64 bits and then it works .
    If I try to do the same on Win 10 64bits, then the message ' Reversi cannot start, please close ...' does appear.
    Did anyone succeeded to make Reversi to work on Win 10 64bit ? If yes, how ?
    Thanks
