Although Windows 7 has some better features and abilities than XP, many users apparently still do not enjoy playing Spider Solitaire in Windows 7. For those of you that prefer Spider Solitaire XP style and want to play it on Windows 7, you can download the following Spider Solitaire XP version files (zip) and put the extracted folder into your Windows 7 system.
After downloading the zipped folder from the link above, extract it, and put the unzipped folder (containing cards, freecell, mshearts, sol, spider, and winmine) into your windows 7 system, C:Windows/System32. Next, open the folder and click the spider.exe to play the game straightly. You can also create the shortcut and play it on the desktop.
