I have been playing freecell, solitaire, hearts, and minesweeper without
problems unitl last week. I went to Start,Programs, Accessories, Games and
when I clicked freecell, an error messsage came up and said that any unsaved
info would be lost.I could click ignore, and nothing happened, then when I
clicked close, a new message came up and said there was a protection fault in
the cards.dll . And the program only allowed me to close it. Now nothing
works in the games folder. I tried to follow the reinstall and still nothing.
What do I do now?

Hi DMT,

Reinstall Windows 98 over itself by running setup from your Windows 98
CD. This will correct those errors, and scan the disk for any errors as well.

Let me know if you have any problems.

I have been using Freecell for a number of years. Last week I had a problem
with a file and did a procedure to reinstall the MSCVRT.DLL file. This fixed
the problem with Internet Explorer; however, now Freecell is acting up. I
get not border lines in Freecell and partical card images appear in the area
on teh top left corner where you place you free cell cards.

I am not sure if I have a copy of the Freecell program to reinstall if that
is what is needed.

1) Did the .dll finle installation create problems for Freecell?
2) Is this a memory problem only? (I installed IE 6.0 very recently and
that may be a source of trouble.)
3) If I need to reinstall Freecell, where can I get a new download? I am
running Windows 98SE.

Regards,

Robert

Hi Robert,

Most likely, you'll need to reinstall FreeCell.

To Install or Uninstall Windows 9x Games:

Click START / Settings / Control Panel / Add-Remove Programs /
Click on the Windows Setup tab and double-click Accessories.
Check the box beside Games, then click OK / click OK again.
You'll need your Windows 98 Setup CD to complete the installation
unless the win98 .cab files directory was saved on your hard drive.

I finally got back to this and I followed your instructions; however, I still
get no borders on Freecell and the screen is not repainting correctly. It is
leaving pieces of the cards in the top left corner of the play area. Any
other ideas?

Hi Robert,

Seems like that problem you had with that file you referred to in
your original post was only the tip of the iceberg pc problem wise.

Click Start / Run / then type: sfc /scannow and press ENTER
to replace any damaged system files -or- Run Setup.exe on your
Windows 98/Me/XP/2000 CD to reinstall Windows over itself without
erasing your programs and data. Once everything works fine reinstall
updates one at a time from: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com while
testing the game after each update, in case an update caused the problem.

Just had time to provide some feedback. I finally got this problem fixed. I
reinstalled Windows 98 SE over the existing version. Installed all updates
and the issue was fixed. Actually it was fixed before installing all the
updates; however, I wanted to make sure that the updates were not the source
of the problem.

The good news is I am FreeCell enabled again :-)

Thanks for your help Jimmy
