Caliber just made that #1 Trainer, for retail + GOG and the hotfix to version v184.108.40.206 so it's up to date. The other GOG trainer, #2 is for ver 3.4. I'm using the Steam version and it's working as well. Typical CheatHappens, chit works.

Edit: I've found the problem. The GOG version only seems to patch me up to 220.127.116.11 and won't go any further and i'm not sure why. The 18.104.22.168 appears to be the Steam version.
Trainer #1 is for 22.214.171.124 so it works for the Steam version but not the updated GOG version.
Trainer #2 is for 3.4 (pre User Control panel patch) so it doesn't work if your game is fully updated.

Trainer 1 is for Retail + GOG + Hotfix to 126.96.36.199
Trainer 2 is same without hotfix.
Trainer 3 is for Steam.
I'm currently playing #3 with Steam and have over 400 hours in it. Caliber just made #1 a little over a week ago to allow for the hotfix. All three of the first three are reported tested and working,
If you're having issues with a trainer and you're starting the game with the Tutorial, I'd suggest either skip the Tutorial or don't use the trainer until the main storyline starts.
The last few pages only vaguely refer to a hotfix but doesn't specify which one. If you Google hotfix, you get 1.35 instead which obviously is wrong.
On top of this, your statement of "Trainer 2 is same" is wrong.
After doing some messing around with the various patches available and with the help of user foresight posting MD5 hashes, i've determined there are 2 different variants of the 188.8.131.52 version of the game or the "not hotfixed" version of the game. One will work with the trainer according to foresight and one does not. And this will affect all non-Steam users of the game that downloads the manual patches off the official website.
So take your condescension and ignorance and shove it.
Sorry if your feelings were hurt, that was a serious attempt at clarifying what the first three trainers are said to work for.
#2 "Same" meant that's what Retail and GOG were using without any hotfix applied. I can't tell you where to get the hotfix as I'm playing Steam, just that it was being used by some people. There are several links at Megagames.com, you might check here.
Beyond that, Caliber's most recent statement about the trainers is here:
When I scour the forums, there's the 1.35 hotfix, there's a dotNET hotfix, and then there's random mention of AMD driver hotfixes. Now you've also added in a 4th option which no one has mentioned before, a noCD hotfix.
Additionally, if someone says "patch to the most recent version", apparently this means different things depending on what platform you purchased the game on and what patching mechanism you chose.
For a Steam user, the "most recent version" of the game is 184.108.40.206 (if you right click the witcher2.exe for a version number). But for a non-Steam user, there is no way to patch to 220.127.116.11 since that version is a Steam hotfix.
For everyone else, the "most recent version" is 18.104.22.168. But this is misleading because there is more than 1 variant of 22.214.171.124.
If you update the game with just auto-updates through the launcher, you get what i'll call variant A.
If you update the game with a standalone patch from the game developers website, you can get variant A or you can get variant B.
If you download from the website the patch labelled "REDkit Gamer's Edition, Patch 3.4", you get variant A.
If you download from the website the patch labelled "Patch Gamers and Modder's Edition, Patch 3.4.1", you get variant B.
The problem is, if you do it the manual way, variant B looks like the "most recent version".
But based on what foresight found, variant B of 126.96.36.199 doesn't work with the trainer despite being the same version that everyone says should work with the trainer. There's no version difference and no one can tell why.
This means for everyone that bought the game from GOG, retail, Origin, or pirated the game (no one does this!), if you patch like a normal person and get what looks like the most up to date version off the website, you're making it so your game won't work with the trainer and then when you post on the forums, people say you're an idiot and doing it wrong and won't help you.
