Where can I find the files?
You must own a copy of the game. You can get a copy easily from GoG.com. It is often discounted to 2.49 € from a full 9.99 € price.
Once owning a copy the game may get installed to multiple locations. If you download a digital copy with separate installer (without GoG Galaxy) on Windows systems you will find the game likely installed at
C:\GOG Games\Settlers 2 GOLD\.
