Just click on the games to play, they will automatically create “Microsoft Games” in your PROGRAM FILES, and will add a shortcut to your start menu under Vista_Games so when you want to play them again you don’t have to keep running them where you saved them. Make sure you have Vista.Emulation.DLL in the c:\windows\system32 folder other wise these will not work
To make Minesweeper work:
Extract minesweeper.bat in the directory containing minesweeper.exe
create a shortcut to desktop or something like that
right click on the shortcut
choose properties
Run: select minimize
and enjoy
just run the .bat file to play the game.

    To know that how to install/run original Vista Games RTM (Inkball and Hold’em), as well as Vista Snipping Tool, Sticky Notes which required Alky/VAIO with Vista Serial on Windows Xp etc:

    Windows 7 games for Xp: So far the games in latest Windows 7 Beta is similar with Vista’s (except the internet versions/MSN e.g Internet Backgammon, Checkers, Spades), not sure about the final version/RTM or higher. Don’t worry you can also play them on Xp desktop online/offline by going to MSN online games: -> Requires min Xp SP2/3 and IE 6 SP1/IE 7/IE 8:

    - Internet BackGammon:

    - Internet Checkers:

    - Internet Spades:

    Download the free offline versions (Bicycle Games demos - Microsoft Games Studios) of them:
