[Free] Microsoft Pinball For Windows Vista & 7

said by MSPinBall.com :
Do You Rember Microsoft Windows Pinball?
Microsoft Windows Pinbal, or 3D Space Cadet Pinball was introduced in Microsoft Plus 95, it then became so popular that it was included in Microsoft Windows NT 4 by default. Microsoft then provided instructions to install it form the Plus 95 CD into Windows 98, it was also included with ME, 2000 and XP. Unfortunately, Microsoft Pinball died a slow and painful death with the release of Windows Vista, or did it?

For those who want to know, On a 64-bit Win7 Pro system, it installs at C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows NT\Pinball in case you want to make a shortcut to it. I imagine for a 32-bit system the path would be the same, minus the (x86); C:\Program Files \Windows NT\Pinball.

For the 32 bit versions, it does do C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball . I just checked on my computer running Windows 7 SP1, X86...

Don't know about others, but there doesn't appear to be an "uninstaller" once installed. There doesn't appear to be an entry in the Control Panel Uninstall Programs list. Nor is there an entry in Window Features/Games section.

Edit to add: On my Win 7 x64 machine it appears that the program files reside in at least two locations...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Pinball
C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games

Edit 2: There appear to be at least 8 registry entries for Pinball as well. Note: CCLeaner did not find/remove these registry entries after I deleted the folders/files mentioned above.

How did you install it?
If you used the .MSI then you should be able to uninstall it easily via the original installer setup file.
I would have used the .MSI installer and not the .EXE. (personal preference) Then you can right click on the .MSI and choose Uninstall.

Who keeps the original install file for apps ?

Thanks, Dustyn. It's one of the few games I've missed on Win7. Installed, runs fine via the .msi installer...

I do. And I update the files as the programs get updated.

I do?
Actually, I have a secondary internal disk drive that holds all of my applications (along with some program settings) in the event I need to reinstall Windows fresh. I have images of course but, there are times when I like to start from scratch, and having all of my frequently used applications already available offline is quite handy. I was just giving bennor See Profile advise on what he could do (in this particular situation) to uninstall the program in the future if need be. I'm not sure why the .EXE did not leave an option to uninstall, but the .MSI does. Plus you don't have to keep the original installer... it should log an entry in Programs and Features. Just obtain it if you can't uninstall it the normal way.

That article makes no sense.
Who cares about a 64-bit port of Pinball. 32-bit is fine with WOW64.
