Pandora's Box Update
These self-extracting, self-installing files install 2 modified files, "pandora.exe" and "langenu.dll". This patch fixes a bug specific to computers with new Pentium III processors , which produce the error "Unable to create DirectDraw surface. Make sure that DirectX is installed, and then try again." upon startup. If you do not have a computer with a Pentium III processor and do not recieve this error upon startup, then there is no need to patch your existing setup.
Note: The current online puzzle demos will not run on Pentium III machines or higher. However, all puzzles in the retail version of Pandora's Box will run on Pentium III computers and above.
For your puzzle solving pleasure we now have the full Trial Version as well as multiple additional puzzles (with more on the way).

Instructions for download:
Download Trial Version
This download, located at the Windows Update site, contains the components you'll need for playing games created with DirectX technologies. The DirectX installation process requires approximately 50 MB of free space on your hard drive. After installation, the DirectX download will take approximately 15 MB of hard drive space. If you had an earlier version of DirectX installed on your system, you will see little difference in available space on your hard drive since DirectX will overwrite the earlier version.
