Add me to the list--I am stuck at the lever and the oil also. You would think this would have been discovered. I am not happy about restarting the game. I would rather trade this for a different game. After this mishap, how many more are there? It's no fun to play a game when you are afraid every move you make may ruin the game.

I played this once before when I first bought it and had no problems with the hoist however tonight I am with all of you. Nothing works and I really do not want to begin this again. I wonder if you use the oil and the handle at the same time it makes any difference? I had put the handle on a while back and just now did the oiling. Drat. It's a good game too!

Having the same problem. I know it's only chapter 2, but I hate to uninstall and install again. Has anyone found a solution yet?

Guys, I feel your pain. I just finished the game and thank goodness, did not have a problem on THIS puzzle.

I do not think reinstalling the game changes a thing. MAYBE deleting previous profiles will help. But I do think you will need to start anew.

SPOILER?
If you have the oil and the lever, apply the oil first to the center of the mechanism. Then apply the lever to the right side. If the game accepts your moves,

---> a cutscene will show the lever being pulled.

You may need to look at the paper in the room - I think? - before doing the activity. I seem to remember there's a page somewhere that shows the oil and lever on the machine. But I'm sorry, I just don't remember for sure. And I think the problems are with the puzzles themselves, not gameplay.

You all may want to read other posts especially under the technical problems. They may show you what to watch out for and to be careful to have all pieces for all puzzles - just to be sure! - before trying one. (SPOILER? click the scene up to three times to get all the text.)

I saw someone gave a great piece of advice. If you're not willing to go through the whole thing over again with a new profile, be sure to wait until the skip button is fully loaded before tackling a puzzle. But it's not a guarantee ....

Do a lot of cursor waving in each location before doing anything. Keep track of things that haven't been done in any location - there are lots of medallions and keys! And if you write down the steps you take and the darned thing crashes or freezes, you can send it in to the customer support folks (green envelope over there on the right! then 'contact' on the next page. )

Good luck, all!

Add another one to the list! I tried uninstalling and re-installing with the same result. I'd be willing to start over if I knew this wouldn't happen again. For now I'm just annoyed and disappointed.

Frustrating! I wish I would have read through all of the forum notes before purchasing it. There's no way to get the oil again and you shouldn't have to. I would like my money back. The game should be patched or removed.
