There is no VERSION file on disc or in game directory.

Please upload the original directory structure from the original game media, without any modifications. It is not supported to change things in any way from the original game media. Thanks!

Thanks for the additional information. It appears that there are a couple of issues here:

1. The SCI detection table does not contain this version of the game, so ScummVM is defaulting to English instead of Polish in the ScummVM launcher (this is just a cosmetic issue);
2. Most of the localisation data and all the game music is stuck inside an InstallShield cabinet on the original game media, and only gets extracted by running the installer.

The first issue is trivial, you have already provided the detection table information so that can be fixed easily.

The second issue is more troublesome since this is the first instance I know of of any SCI game having critical game data stored inside of a non-SCI archive on the installation disc. I don’t really want to have to instruct users on how to correctly extract data from the CAB file, and we already have an InstallShield cabinet reader, so I will see about hooking that up so we can just get the data out of the cabinet directly at runtime which should make the game easier to install into ScummVM. In the meantime you can move all the files from the Data directory into the root LSL7 directory and that should give you the correct localisations for the moment.

So few my tests:

After fresh install - ScummVM can't detect game.
After copying "Movies" directory from install cd to install directory - ScummVM still can't detect game.
After copying Resmap.000, Resmdt.000, Ressci.000, Resource.aud, Data.tag from install cd - ScummVM finally detected game.
But with issue from original post, so i've copied all files from ./data directory into root of LSL7 dir and everything seems to works fine finally :)

This works well for Windows but on PSVita voice over is still missing :( Any ideas how to fix it? Everything else seems to works well on vita (polish subtitles etc).

I recently tried to help one of my friends with exactly the same problem. I tried my copy of the game and encountered it too (I tried ScuumVM 2.1.1 as well as daily build from 03-27-2020). As it turns out we have two different versions of Polish LSL7 (mine from some magazine cover CD, his from CD Project's Extra Klasyka Edition) and both of them have only English subtitles and no polish voice acting. Additionally for me ScummVM recognizes installed game, for him don't (but recognizes game on CD).

My version is only one installer (one big .exe file) so I'll attach only directory listing after installation (directory-listing-Installed.txt) and his (directory-listing-EK-Installed.txt and directory-listing-EK-CD.txt).
