Two prototypes of Solitaire have been found in beta releases of Windows 3.0. Both are from very late in the game's development and have very few differences.
The only known difference between the January 1990 prototype and the final version is the wording of a few error messages. No other differences are known.
|Final||Out of memory|
|Prototype||Can't load Windows Help application|
|Final||Unable load Windows Help application|
|Prototype||Unable to load bitmap, use green background?|
|Final||Unable to load bitmap; do you want to use a green background?|
|Prototype||Not enough memory for bitmap dragging|
|Final||Insufficient memory to display card faces when cards move;|
select the Outline dragging box from the Options menu.
This build is nearly identical to the final, only 3 bytes differ.
