I followed the instructions on the link above but freecell just wont open. (or it opens and closes so fast I can't see it).

for convenience I downloaded and used the patch. But it made no difference. Freecell would not open.
So for pig iron I downloaded and installed free hex editor Nero.
Doing a search in the binary freecell.exe, I could not find the string that was supposed to be there (neither before or after the edit)
I did the same search in the solitare.exe binary - again no such string.

So is this posting really true? - can you get the old freecell to work on w8?How to use old microsoft games in Windows 8
