Hello, my old install didn't work so I made a fresh one.
It had some problems due filenames.

If you try with the old v1.1 slave does it work OK? Available here: https://www.whdload.de/whdload/old-games/Puzznic-20010621.lha

Sorry, I had no notification about your message. Just found out by revisiting this page.
I tried 2 ipf and 2 cracked versions, only one was recognized and gave my a message that my files are damaged aftr running it.
The newer install works but I have to rename the files in the data directory to 4 letters each except for the "puzznic.cod" to work as the example on my first post.

Cheers.

Yes, I got the same using v1.3. However when I tried the older patch v1.1 linked above, in WinUAE at least it doesn't have this issue. I wondered if you could do the same please?

If using an older version of WHDLoad, all is well and game runs after directly after installing.
For WHDLoad 18.x, rename of files is required for game to run.

You can grab the archive with corrected filenames from Turran FTP if you need to inspect files.

@Retroplay
This is what I did at first, renamed everything and worked.
No prob to do that, just a report for the installer :-)
