I recently installed 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium on a new build and some of my games are not showing up in the Start Menu. For example, there's no Ubisoft folder where Assassin's Creed 2 would be otherwise. And under Electronic Arts where I would usually see both Crysis AND Battlefield Bad Company 2, I can only see Crysis. On my old computer with Windows XP, this was never an issue. Does anyone know how this can be fixed?

you reinstalled the games after you installed windows 7 or did you upgrade to windows 7 with the games already installed?
i know some titles like spore require a patch to add the icons to the start menu on the 64 bit platform.

Check the Program Files(x86) folder for your games.

Hi friend,

Open the Games folder by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type games, and then, in the list of results, click Games Explorer.

Your games should appear in this folder if you have installed it. The Games folder is more than just the central repository for all games on your computer. It also offers game updates, statistics, rating information, RSS feeds, and more.

Do post your results (if working or not) for any further help. Happy Computing :huh:
