Windows 7: Solitaire

03 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Mac OS X 10.6.2 x64

If I were to copy the files for Solitaire, and Minesweeper, what would I have to copy?

If you need to know, I want to use it on Ubuntu Wine for times when I have to use Ubuntu.

Dude you can't really just copy the files, you would need to reprogram the games to run on a UNIX machine.

Besides there are many awesome original for linux.

But if you really want to play solitaire you just have to do a little searching on the net.

Why wouldn't you be able to? I just copied the files for some other programs, even PHOTOSHOP, and you know how complicated that is.

I know theres the game files, cards.dll in windows folder (cant find it though), and registry files. I just dont know why that didnt work.

I just want to know the other files I need, because the linux versions are meh.

If you want regular solitaire, then I would recommend PySol. It runs on Python and is basically a Linux program, even though it works very well on Windows also. It is a far cry better than Windows Solitaire.
