Here Since 2003
First click a few boxes randomely (atleast thats what I do, I always start from a corner though).
It if doesnt have a mine a number will be displayed.
This number represents the no. of adjoining boxes containing mines (each box can have max 8 adj boxes so this number is always less than equal to 8).
You have to use your analytical skills now to figure out which boxes doesnt contain any mine.
If you suspect a box contains a mine flag it.

^^ Haha, sounds pretty good, brilliant job to implement a bit of AI, really, but I'm proud of my work, and dont give a damn about others'. Took me a good while to figure out the internals of minesweeper, and I consider it a very good learning experience :)

^HAHA, Thankyou.
one bit of AI again.
more?
I wasnt complimenting you, but rather the guy who did the program.

The third link sounds pretty complicated. AI and math is not really my cup of tea, so I find it greek and latin. We're supposed to have AI next year in engineering, I guess, lets see then... I dont really understand all this mumbo jumbo :p But my program is fully based on reverse engineering the game, and therefore its pretty interesting to look under the hood of the program and analyze what it does :) Atleast I find it to be :)

Minesweeper Solver by A.Dheeraj Kumar

http://a.dheeraj.kumar.googlepages.com/mine.rar

Run Minesweeper, set board to your requirements, and run my program. Tested on Windows XP(all versions) only. Doesnt work on Vista.

PM me for the theory behind it.

Lol, nothing is new in it.
just searching on google provides me a lot of solver.
looks you also copied from someone.
because all of the solver only applicable on xp and previous versions.
And You are also doing the same.
can you give me
mansweeper solver for vista?

^^ There may be nothing new dude, but Im still proud of my work!!! Try doing something by yourself, and you'll feel the same :)

You saying I copied from someone because all solvers work only on xp and previous? sheesh! what a reasoning! this may be similar to other software, so the idea may be copied, but the program itself is not. Get that? There are so many video conversion utilities available, different names, same task. Similar to that.

I dont have vista currently, and I've been informed that minesweeper on vista looks and plays completely different. I'd like to inspect that when I change to vista. I'm a XP fan through and through :) I'll change to vista when SP2 gets released.

Indyan, you would be better of starting somewhere in the middle rather than the corners.

Dheeraj, till now I have noticed that the mine doesn't explode in the first click on vista.
