I know, I know... my first thread in a long time and I'm asking a question about Freecell...well here it goes...

My grandparents have one computer and both like to play freecell and keep the stats. My grandfather is actually quite computer savvy but neither of us can figure out how to have two seperate "installations" of freecell that individually keep track of the stats. I know there's got to be a way to make this happen. I tried copying the .exe to a seperate folder but that didn't work :(

Thanks LeeJend but that's not going to work for them.

btw, love the fact that you still have my quote in your sig.

Freecell keeps the stats in the registry so you would need to export the stats from the registry when you want to save and you would need to do this for each person's stats. Maybe name the reg files in their name or something. Then when they want to play and have their stats you would need to import their reg file.
Save > export
Import > play

Stats are here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\FreeCell

Honestly I think the easiest way for them to do this is seperate accounts.
But to make it easier for them make a second account for them and have one of them go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\freecell.exe

right click and run as (under the second account.) that way they dont have to log off every time.

Hope that helps.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
