I have moved on from Windows XP Home to Windows 7. I've been searching the web for the old Microsoft 3D space cadet pinball. Can anyone please lead me in the right direction? I really like this classic game+was sorry to see that MS didn't see fit to put it in Win 7
Thanks

You can just copy the pinball folder from xp to windows 7, and it works :)

Well, that's a bit of a problem as my old computer has Windows XP, not the new one. Again, I just would like an idea of where to go on the web to get the download for 3D space cadet pinball,please.
I am running Windows 7 + it doesn't have the game installed.

Thank you

This link:
http://www.groovypost.com/howto/windows-7-3d-pinball-space-cadet-game/

 

works with windows 7. After grappling with all the other manners of obtaing XP's 'Space Cadet' pinball, can across that link. It has worked for me so far, and my laptop isn't "xp mode" compatible, according to the wizard. even though the laptop's OS was swithced from XP Pro, to Windows 7 Pro.

And this link, from one of the above posts:

 

I had to make adjustments to the settings via Properties----> Compatibility(Run this program in compatibility mode for *drop box 'Windows 7") & Settings, check box 'Run in 640x480 screen resolution----> click "apply", then OK.

It didn't work until that procedure. I was looking to uninstall it, but found this solution 1st. If someone can add how to uninstall, I'd be interested, just in case.

The best Pinball Simulator I have found.  They do actual tables and it is available for Apple and Android devices.  The only problem is that if you purchase the tables you have to do them on every platform.

Pinball is also called Microsoft Windows pinball and it has one more name called 3D space cadet pinball and was introduced in Microsoft Plus 95 operating system, Microsoft was not offering the pinball to Windows versions released but after Windows XP one can easily installed the pinball in his system, and even if the pinball is not included in Vista, you can easily download it from the internet, then install and play it in any of the platform of Windows. You will not have to concern about compatibility issue, easily download and play pinball game.
