After continually freezing on the slider puzzle game - I decided to change my profile and play as another player. When I got to the game that froze, I just waited until I could SKIP it. Once I did that I was able to continue on into the game. I am now at the boat landing.

I am having the same prob. as many of your players with the hoist/lever...I'm surprised you haven't fixed the problem yet....can you let me know when you do fix it or do I have to keep checking here ?

After playing the cabinet puzzle with the three pink blocks and one blue block, and then trying to enter the secret room, an error message keeps appearing saying 'access violation' and the game then shuts down.

I do not want to start again with a new profile because I am near the end of the game.

I will try uninstalling and reinstalling the game to see if that works, but has anyone got any other suggestions please?

Did anyone find an answer to the lever and hankerchief problem?

I have the same problem as everyone else. I am unable to continue with the game as the lever on the engine will not activate. I've gone over all the different parts of this puzzle. I checked on the handkerchief, checked the elevator, checked the notes on the floor, put the lever in place, and used the oil. The lever will not activate. This is not a matter of the screen freezing. I am still able to activate the notes on the floor. If the program was frozen I would not be able to leave the engine window let alone activate other parts of the puzzle. This is programming. Poor programming. Not a happy Fishey.
Will be sending this on to the Techs.

I too had a freeze on the slide puzzle on the gravestone (on the trail version). I had to close all down and restart. When restarted it went right to the same spot and was still frozen. The next time I restarted I created a new player name and played from the start to the puzzle then let the skip button fill up. Once filled I hit it and by passed the puzzle and went on my way. I think I will wait awahil to buy this one. I have purchases the Frog Prince and Snow Queen and love both!!!

Purchased game after September "fix" but I, too, encountered the lever not working. I restarted game using different profile name and was able to pull lever and move on. I'm now at the sign post outside the stable where the reset button will not work on the green tube game. I guess I will uninstall this game from my game manager so I won't be tempted to replay at a later date and move on to another game.

This game does not work right and re installed more than once and it still does not work. Can we get our money back or a credit??

The game plays great for me and I haven't been having any of the freezing problems others have been having (trust me, not gloating). However, the problem I AM having is that each time I go back to play (sometimes a day later, sometimes much longer), I get an error message right after it loads. The error message is "Your save data is corrupted and will be deleted." I had gotten pretty far each time, so this was bad news. One silver lining was that since I had had to start over so many times, my speed was amazing on the scenes I had already gone through before.
I uninstalled and re-installed and that did not fix the corrupted data message. If I only had this one game, I could just start it and leave it open when I want to do other things on the computer, but that really isn't an option. I guess I could play it from start to finish so I don't lose my place, but I have no idea how much time I would have to set aside to accomplish it.
Anyone else having this problem? Went to the tech support area and it said I should be an administrator on my computer, but I have been all along.
Needless to say, frustrating.

I get the part where you are supposed to get a jar of termites, a minigame. Game freezes up and never returns. There are also no X boxes for me to close the minigame or a SKIP. Thanks

Installed full version today and when I tried to exit the game it completely froze up. Had to open task manager to get the game shut down.
Guess I will see later if my game progress was saved.

I've also got problems with the oilcan and lever being added and then it removes the rust then nothing no change to scene. It's as if the oilcan wasn't there.no freeze just not continuation of action. Do I reinstall or just try replaying from scratch?

I can not get the machete in Chapter 2 to cut the crime scene tape. That is my next step and if I click hint it states to cut the crime tape with the machete. I have uninstalled and reinstalled no help.

Mixed colors correctly in the father's lab and cannot get the key. Any suggestions? I really do not want to start all over again. Help would be appreciated.

I, too, had the well-vial issue just today 2/5/12. Obviously this has not been fixed as I purchased & installed mid November, after the September "fix". I didn't realize there was a known problem with this puzzle. On my first attempt to understand the puzzle by fiddling with it I didn't solve it but did put all the colored balls into the vials, I tried to reset the puzzle using the reset button for another try. The reset button does not work. I tried then to quit the game to check the forums on this matter & the game froze on the menu. Ctrl-Alt-Del was the only way to quit. I had to skip the puzzle which resulted in another freeze. Re-entering the game, the puzzle was skipped & I can move on, however, I'm very disappointed as I prefer the puzzles/adventure portions of these games to the HOS. Now I've read there are other puzzles which trigger known issues....some of which I have already passed successfully, others yet to come. I did trial the game before purchase & didn't have any issues, hence the purchase. Haven't had any other issues with games on this fairly new Win7 laptop. I will be contacting CS.

(edit for spelling)
