    Hi!
    My name is Kevin, I’ve got a problem.One of the tasks in danger on deception Island is to find 15 clams.I’ve searched near the lighthouse and on the Island, and even though Nancy says that she cannot find any more clams on either place. I still lack 2 clams. I’ve downloaded the patch without any results, and am clueless on what to do now? p.s I don’t if this effects the game in any way but I bought the game on steam.

    After some closer inspection I realize that I didn’t updat the game correct file. The problem is that I bought the game on steam so I have no clue what file on my computer I need to update in order for the patch to work?

    • Catherine says:

      If you have Vista or Windows 7, and you bought the game from Steam, you want to install it in here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Nancy Drew Danger on Deception Island\Ciftree

    Hi. I have the old physical copy of danger on deception island, and I just recently downloaded it onto my windows 8 laptop. I have read your instructions on how to creat a new document file and install older games. I have already successfully installed other older games without any problems, but this game says ( CSound::LoadDIGISound() – channel 26 error, file D: \ CDSound\…..etc) and then won’t let me get past the introduction of the game before it freezes. What can I do to fix this?? Thanks!

    I just downloaded danger on deception Island and found I cannot use the Menu, so I can’t save and quit. I am unable to close my new HP notebook, and had to keep physically turning off the machine. Your help is greatly needed.

    Hi, I have downloaded the patch for the clams (not sure if I have done it correctly, however) and I have gone back to the 3 locations but still cannot find the last 2 clams to progress in the game.

  9. Jana says:

    I installed this game and get an error message saying it can’t find the game.ini file. What on earth do I do?

  10. Eileen says:

    I tried installing the patch but it is showing ‘invalid directory’ so I looked for the game myself instead of letting my pc do it and it told me the update successfully installed but I’m still stuck with 13 clams and can’t d anything else.
