I have tried numerous times to use your method for installing and using Microsoft’s games on my Server 2008 R2, 64-bit server. I have been repeatedly unsuccessful. I have followed your instructions to the letter.
Upon attempting to run one of the games, any of the games, nothing occurs. The applications do not open, as far as I can tell don’t even try to open.
I have all of the requisite runtime files downloaded, have extracted the necessary DLL’s, etc., from a Windows 7 disk.
Is there any information you can add that might help? Have you tried or heard of anyone successfully trying to run Windows 7 games in a Server 2008, R2 64-bit environment?
