When I heard that some were coming back, I can’t say that I was over the moon, but thought that Tinker might make a welcome change from FreeCell. So I waited and waited, checking Windows Update for it, but alas nothing appeared.
Then I found out that I have to join Games For Windows Live, which I duly did, but every time I tried to log in, it sent the rest of the network offline.
ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS PLAY TINKER, JUST LIKE I USED TO PLAY IT IN VISTA.
I have uninstalled all of the crap and will continue to play FreeCell. Thank you for the understanding, but I was quite happy playing Tinker OFFLINE and without the need to share my profile with all and sundry while doing so.
