Well, this kinda sucks:
The Win98 FreeCell solitaire game doesn't work with KernelEx 4.5 beta 2 or 4.5 RC 1.
- Function keys do nothing
- Display is corrupted when moving multiple cards
- "Select game" menu option locks it up
- Random lockups while playing
- No crashes, therefore no drwatson log; sorry
And there's no compatibility tab on the Freecell.exe properties, so I can't just turn KernelEx off!
FreeCell runs fine if I uninstall KernelEx.
I have just checked FreeCell and Reversi on two systems. I can't replicate those problems on any of them.
I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling with the 'disabled by default' option - still doesn't work.
I also have a minor bug in Reversi (old 16-bit game): the cursor is supposed to change to a cross on squares that are legal moves. It does, but it gets "stuck" - it stays a cross everywhere on the board.
Both work properly if KernelEx is uninstalled.
Can you check if the problem is there with last stable release - KernelEx 4.0 Final 2 ?
Could you provide a DrWatson log with FreeCell running?
Can you make a screenshot of that display corruption?
Compatibility tab is enabled for all 32-bit executables.
I thought there was meant to be a compatibility tab for all .exe files?
Why not in this case of Freecell.exe I wonder?
KernelEx can't affect 16-bit apps directly so there is no tab there.
