Where is Microsoft Tinker ?

Posted: 09-28-2008, 03:48 PM

Hi,

I just used Windows Update to install Microsoft Tinker on my Vista
Ultimate x64.
Everything went OK.
However, I couldn't find it anywhere to play with it.

Anything wrong, please ?

Hello Alan,

It should have been added to the Games Explorer window in the Start
Menu. This tutoriral will help show you this location if needed.

Hope this helps,

Check in the Start > All Programs > Games > Microsoft Tinker. Or in the
Games Explorer. If it's not there, try the Windows Updates again and see if
it shows up. It may not have installed correctly.

I had the same problem and resolved it by installing all available
Ultimate Extras. I hope that this helps.
