Under Windows 8.1, Hoyle Puzzle and Board Games installs several components. If you do not allow the installation to continue when it installs the optional components or allow the program to continue after the security warning (shield icon) it crashes.

Also Windows Smart Screen has a notorious reputation to block some of our older products. It's suggested to disable it as well. The following link will tell you how to disable the feature so you can have a proper installation of the program
