There should be a date or wine version on appdb entries. 

Freecell (or any other Entertainment Pack card game except Tripeaks) won't
run on unmodified wine since November 2003.

I think 20031016 was the last version that it worked with. Sometime around
then anyway. After that, the builtin cards.dll was changed from the 16-bit
one to the 32-bit one.


Since it can't be overridden for some reason (that was explained to me, but
I've since lost the email -- something about wine preferring 32-bit dlls), I
just remove the cards.dll.so each time I upgrade.
