Do have a new problem.
Trying to get games that were on Windows 98se.
Freecell \Hearts \ Solitaire \ Minesweeper
This is what I tried,to no luck.
Went to Add / Remove unchecked games and rebooted,
tried to reinstall, rechecked games and a box came up to
insert Windows 98se disk. I did that and this came up:
The file "cards.dll" on Windows 98se cannot be found.
Setup couldn't find a file on the specified path.
E:\autorun\windows
Error Details:
Setup couldnot finish opening a file on the source disk.
Don't know anything about this or how to get the missing file.

The file path should be E:\win98 for the installation files.

Tryed that file path also, but it didn't work.
I searched the windows 98 cd but couldn't find the file.
Tryed again and found the file on the Windows 98 cd-rom.
cards.dll Win98_61.cab
I did what you said, but I didn't have any luck.
Not sure if I extracted the file from 98 cd correct.
If I did I put the file cards.dll in, C:\Windows\System.
Did the Add\Remove thing, this is what I got:
The file '3dblocks.bmp' on Windows 98se cd-rom
cannot be found.
If the path appears below. Click ok.
Copy files from:
E:\autorun\Windows
E:\Windows
A:\
C:\Windows\System
None of these worked.
Sorry for being a pain.........

Its done, all fixed.
I went into File Checker to extract the files.
When I put the cd-rom in, I had to type, E:\win98.
It wasn't in the path.
I want to thank you for all your help.
