Ah yes, Squeak is a different critter.

The solution to your problem is to launch Squeak, then ALT-O for the 
morph selector, then select FreeCell from the games table and run it.  
Most every modern version of the Image has FreeCell installed.  Enjoy.

The Squeak VM loads a smalltalk image into RAM and begins executing the 
Smalltalk code in that image.  In some operating systems, 
double-clicking a text file associated with Squeak will cause Squeak to 
load an image (or its default image) and then "fileIn" the text file.  
This in turn can, but ordinarily will not, begin executing an 

Given a new changefile with an application not already in the image, you 
would start Squeak, fileIn the application, and follow the instructions 
in the changeset for running the application.  There are many ways to 
automate an app to be double-clickable from the native OS desktop, but 
this will not, in general work unless the changeset was specially set up 
to do so.
