Someone on this list asked for direct links to Aurora and its patches.
Here they are, in the proper order:
Download and install 4.91. The installer will ask about overriding some
newer files. Answer "yes", because the question is poorly worded, and
"yes" in reality keeps your current versions, which are newer than the old
MS Visual Studeo installer comes with.
From there, unzip the 491 update file (it's also in the 4.91 zip file)
into your Aurora directory. Unzip both patches in order and you should be
set to run the game, except for a final minor database update. When you
first run after patching as above, there should be an error popup. Choose
the "Space Race" game and hit enter on it. Go to the game menu and select
V5.14 data update. Once that finishes, which shouldn't take more than a
second or two, you'll be running the same version I am.
I hartily recommend the forums as an excellent place to start looking for
information and advice.
Best and enjoy,
