SOL.EXE and FREECELL.EXE errors
I am having problems running Solitaire and Freecell on my computer.

My operating System is Windows 98SE.

When I attempt to run these programs, I get general protection faults on both in the following programs: SOL.EXE (for Solitaire) and CARDS.EXE (for Freecell). The programs both close with the message instructon me to "contact the vender if it happens again."

On both programs, the game screen turn green with gibberish at the top.

Once I hit "Close" everything disappears.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Is this a comman problem with a quick fix?

The Microsoft Knowledge Database lists this issue, with the solution of deactivating AOL or Yahoo Messanger programs. But as I do not run either one, I could not fix this issue.

If anyone out there has this problem, please assist me!

Thanks,

GREG

I have not had this problem myself but, I thought maybe you could try uninstalling them through add/remove programs and then reinstalling them to see if it makes any difference.
Got to control panel-add/remove programs then select the windows setup tab. scroll down to games and open that up and uncheck classic games. You'll probably have to restart the computer, then go back in and reinstall them.
