Smile Download Laura Bow 2

Hello dear folks, I'm from Germany and wish to download Laura Bow 2: The Dagger of Amon Ra, because I played it in the early 90's with my youg daughters on my old PC. I've downloaded DOSBOX 0.73. But I cannot find a download, eventually even in German. Can You help me, please?
p.s. I've Windows Vista 64bit and was born 1947

It is downloadable from this site.
However there is a bug, one of many ...., you must set your site language to 'ENGLISH' on the main site, then you can download the game.
If it's set to 'GERMAN' it gives a 'ESA no go'.

Bugs, we can't do without them, love them critters.

When I'm at the Lyendecker party, the name "Dr. Olympia Myklos" never gets added to my notebook, even though I've eavesdropped on all the conversations and spoken to her on every subject. Do I just have to wait longer or is this a bug?

Mr. X is supposed to come in on the right side, pause slightly, turn around, screen cut to him breaking open the Storage Room door, screen cut back to Laura, Laura runs to hole in door (from what I remember).
When I enter the sarcophagus, Mr. X doesn't appear, I walk out and then he shows up, bonks me on the head and well...obviously dead I need to restore. Anybody had this happen or does my timing just suck?
Also, I have everything that Capo mentioned (on Page 10 of this thread) that I'm supposed to have to start Act V. Am I missing something? Did I do something wrong/out of order?
Thank you in advance to everyone who can help me! ^.^
Don't close the Armor Room's door

Default Steven doesnt show up

Hi,

I've got exactly the same problem as Arete described; Steven doesn't show up at the party. I've talked to everyone about pretty much everything, and I also had a lot of "eardrop scenes", but after the last one all main characters disappeared and I'm stuck at the museum. There's nothing I can do, I can't leave as there's no taxi and Heimlich blocks the way in the room with the big skeleton.

Too bad; this game really had potential, but when it has such "dead ends" because you didn't ask someone a single thing at some point before it's just so annoying.

Default Problem

Hey all I am very anxious to play this but having some compatability issues. I downloaded the zip file and extracted it to C:/oldgames/laura

but when I try and run the install.exe I get this error : the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows yadayadayadayada

I have dosbox downloaded and I have it in the folder rdy to drop my exe but its the install exe not the game running exe and it wont let me install it to then run it! >.< does this make sense?

/dosbox newb

The game does not require installation. The file you need to run is scidhuv.exe.

Normal when you're trying to run a DOS executable on newer versions of Windows.

Have you installed DOSBox in the first place?
