Thank you Jenny 100. The gog version uses Scumm V m ---that's what appears on my screen when I start the game. For now I'm taking a break for a couple of days as I am getting a royal headache. I have downloaded lamplight city and going to try that--- no inventory to miss picking up.

I don't have this game from GOG but I do use the GOG Galaxy so I tried looking for saved games and I couldn't find them anywhere.

I am playing the GOG release (which uses ScummVM) on a Win7 64bit machine.

I downloaded it via Firefox. [I don't use GOG Galaxy.]

My downloads (from any source) automatically go to a folder named Downloads on my D Drive.

Once the setup files for Lighthouse had downloaded to my D Drive, I created a folder called GOG GAMES on my C Drive and moved the files there.
I installed the game to C Drive.

My route to my saves is :

C Drive
GOG Games
Lighthouse
Saves

[I use both C and D drives for my games as both are very big drives and afford me plenty of space.]

If you install the game directly with GOG Galaxy then you probally find the savegames here:

C---Programm files (x86)----GOG Galaxy----Games----Lighthouse-----Saved games

The GOG version uses ScummVM and the save files are not compatible with the original interpreters. Also the DOS interpreter and Windows interpreter saves are not compatible with each other. Further, Sierra SCI games are version specific. In other words saves from v1.1 and those from v2.0 are not interchangeable. Saves with the original interpreters will be made in the game's folder. Unless specified elsewhere the ScummVM saves will be in the location Jenny posted.

All of this does not mean that it is hopeless, just that you need to know what interpreter and version of the game that the saves were made with as well as what interpreter and version of the game you have.

That said, it looks like you have the GOG (probably ScummVM) and if the downloaded saves were not made with ScummVM they will not work.

Then the saves would end up in the VirtualStore, not under Program Files.

Thank you everyone who tried to help me. I bit the bullet yesterday and uninstalled the game. I feel much better now. When and if I reinstall it, I will play VERY carefully, and make sure I don't miss any key inventory items LOL!
