    Hi
    I love the default games of Win7 (Mahjong, Solitair, Freecell).
    But I can't get them on Win8. That's because Microsoft doesn't support my country.
    Is there any way to download and install these free games on Win 8 other than from Xbox?

    I don't think the games problem is because of country. The default Windows 7 games are all xBox now, or so it looks.

    I don't think you can copy without violating the Windows 7 EULA.

    So, seems there is no way.
    It is because of sanctions. Microsoft doesn't support our country.

    Yes, it says:
    Sorry, Windows Store isn't available in your region.
    I even tried to set it on Freegate to hide my location; but I couldn't.
    I had turned off "Let apps use my location" in Setting>Privacy.
