What is Hardwood Solitaire Deluxe?

Hardwood Solitaire Deluxe is a Windows PC video game produced by Oberon Mdeia and distributed by Iplay. This game offers more than 129 different versions of solitaire, ranging from familiar favorites like freecell, pyramid, and memory, to games you've probably never even heard of, like Emperor of Germany, and Napoleon in St. Helena.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named solitaire.exe. The setup package generally installs about 22 files and is usually about 13.41 MB (14,056,704 bytes).
