I recently reinstalled Vista Home Premuim on to my Laptop after a crash. But the games folder is missing. It normally contains soiltair, inkball, hearts etc.

It's not installed on the machine, I have copied the Microsoft Games folder from Program files of another vista machine. But the games wont run, how can I go about installing them?

The Games option is missing from the features.

Many Thanks
