Vista Freecell not operating correctly

Posted: 01-06-2009, 08:44 PM


Hi,

I am not much of a computer person, but like to play Freecell. My
Vista version has devleoped a glitch...a line of cards appears in
between the usual sites and cannot be moved normally, therefore making
the game useless. This happens every time, and starting a new game does
not correct the stiuation. Can I unistall this game and reinstall from
back up discs? If so could someone give me detailed directions?

Perhaps someone else has has seen this problem, I haven't heard of it. I
don't know if it will fix it or not, but uninstalling and re-installing
freecell is easy and won't hurt anything. Depending on your configuration
you may need your original Vista disk (it will prompt for the disk if it
needs it)

1) On the start menu, on the side you should see "Control Panel", click on
it.
1a) if the Control Panel link isn't there, use the search box at the bottom
of the start menu and type in Control Panel

2) In the Control Panel - if you have "Classic View" selected - run the
"programs and Features" icon.
2a) if you have "Control Panel Home" view selected - click on "Programs"
(not the links under it but the large "Programs" link)

3) Look for "Turn Windows features on or off" and click it, you should get a
list of windows features with Games at the top.

4) click the little plus-sign next to Games to open up the list of installed
games.

5) uncheck FreeCell and click OK. it will spend a couple of minutes deleting
files and then the game is gone.

to re-install, do the same, just add a checkmark next to FreeCell.

Note: be careful not to change any other checkmarks, installing or
uninstalling pieces of Windows must be done carefully and with knowledge of
what security risks it may introduce.

let us know if the reinstall fixes the problem.


Hope that helps!
Mark

I tried that method and no joy. I think this problem happened after
downloaded SP 1. If I go back to an earlier date it might fix th
situation but I would still have to reinstall the SP 1. I have back u
discs but they would not have the update either
