    I recently download Sherlock Holmes Devil’s Daughter to my laptop. I have Windows 10 and have done the patch and downloaded 3 graphic updates to my laptop. but the real problem I have is I can’t save the game. I have requested via email an answer to this problem or a refund via PayPal. Apparently I am to give the gamers until Nov. 14th to reply to my request before I can request a refund of the purchase price. This is a pain in the butt….
