Microsoft's version of Chip's Challenge, also known as CHIPS.EXE or MSCC, refers to the version of Chip's Challenge included in the Microsoft Entertainment Pack 4 and the Best of Microsoft Entertainment pack. The term is used to differentiate Microsoft's version of the game with Tile World's version of the MS ruleset.

MSCC is a 16-bit program, and therefore cannot be run on 64-bit versions of Windows. As a consequence, MSCC's popularity gradually decreased over the past few years. In 2018, a workaround (now somewhere here?) was discovered by Andrew Raykowski, and MSCC experienced an increase in popularity.
