My current main computer is using Windows XP Pro Version 2002, but it came installed on this computer when I got it and without a re-installation disc. It does not contain Microsoft's Freecell solitaire game and I would like to find that older version again if still possible. Microsoft's download center doesn't have it any more apparently, and while I've downloaded and installed other versions of the game, none have same characteristics that the MS version had.

If anyone knows how I could obtain a copy of that old standby, I'd really appreciate it. Suggestions or recommendations for other versions are welcome also.

Not sure if you will get prompted for a disc but it may not hurt to try this.

Open the Add or Remove Programs control panel.

Select Add/Remove Windows Components on the left side.

Click on Accessories and Utilities and click the Details button.

Click on Games and click the Details button..

Put a check mark next to Freecell and click OK.
The game should install and be ready for use.

They will need an XP install disk to complete that task

Unfortunately, Freecell is not listed as one of my subcomponents under the details list, so I can't activate it as suggested.
