Windows N version, don't have games explorer


New Member

I have the N version of Windows 7 Professional (x64).
I don't have the normal Games Explorer folder. This causes issues with installing and starting games as they want to use the Games Explorer and have resulted in 'IGamesExplorer couldn't verify access' errors.
I tried the parental controls solution and I tried enabling the 'Games' in the Turn windows features on or off screen.
But I still don't seem to have the Games Explorer installed. I do have a folder in my startmenu where it put those standard games in (after enabling them) but if i open that games folder i get a normal explorer window instead of the normal games explorer.

My question is, how or where can I download and install the Games Explorer as I can't seem to find a download for it anywhere.
Any help would be appreciated.

So, you're saying the Games Explorer does come with the N version?
If so, it doesn't appear to be working. It prevents me from playing certain games, even when I'm on an administrator account.
The games that give errors all report that the games explorer couldn't verify access.
Any idea how to remedy this?
