    Did you follow the procedure exactly? What is the source of the games? What is your current OS??

    That will have to wait until tonight (GMT +1), right now I don't have access to my laptop that runs Windows 8 CP. But if it works I'll let you know... and you can expect my thanks.

    Source of games are a Windows 7 SP1 x86 install.wim archive. My OS is Windows 8 CP x64. I'm trying it again right now.
    Edit: I've tried w/ non-SP Windows 7's files and they worked. Thanks.
