Dear community, dear Ubi,

For years I have enjoyed playing the Settlers 2 and the Settlers 2 - Die nächste Generation (not sure what this is in English …).
When my old Laptop broke down, I replaced it by a new one and this one does not have any optical drive. Now … despite possessing two original versions of "Settlers 2 - Die nächste Generation" (had to buy a second one when I was abroad … :D) I do not see any way continue playing it. There is no way to Register online, there is no "no CD" patch or something … ISO/virtual CD does not help (Securom I guess) ….
And the Internet is surprisingly unaware of this Topic - Maybe I am the only one still playing that game?!

Anyway … can you help me out here? I do not Always want to carry an external optical drive with me, especially not when traveling.

Thanks and all the best

Never played 2, but the best option would be to purchase the recent re-release, it would be a digital download and has been updated to work better with new computers.
