Title: I dislike Windows (Me Hate'in on Win 7) Solved
Post by: RCND on July 04, 2015, 04:40:03 PM
Howdy All:

Venting time for me, frustration level past the redline.

Problem: Game called Mahjongg Ascension from Worlds Best Mahjongg Games by Value Soft. Includes World Jongg and Ultimate Mahjongg 20. both which work fine.

Reason for Problem: This is my Mother's favorite game. This game requires Flash Player. After about three months of weekends trying to get this to work in Wine with LL and other distro's I gave up.

I upgraded my HTPC, taking the old board which was duel boot Win 7, Mint 17 and building a new computer for her. Because this board was married to my copy of Win 7, I reloaded it and installed all her old XP software.

Everything worked perfectly. Then the hard drive started losing the MBR. I know this is the death knewld for a hard drive, so I installed a different one. (BTW this drive is still alive with LL 2.4 on it).

I've installed all software back on new drive. Now this game Mahjonng Ascension is telling me it needs Flash Player to run. I have installed it using both the included 9.0c version as well as the latest version from Adobe.

This is the problem I had trying to get it working in LL with Wine and now same problem Native?!!

Any and all suggestions welcomed. Thank you in advance.
Robert

Howdy All:

I got it figured out. You have to add flash player with Explorer. I never use Explorer and haven't since the Netscape days.

Later.
