I was not complaining, merely passing a comment.
'Install this' - for want of a better phrase. Before the game installed there
was no Securom on my system. After the game was installed Securom was on my
system, as undeletable folders and undeletable registry entries. What would be a
better term than Install ?
Cowsheep. Do I detect a slight note of sarcasm ? Apologies if not, but if so, how
does one know that the game is a 'securom game' before installation, by which
time it is of course too late.
I have no problems with securom being used (assuming that it does actually cut
down on piracy, which from what I have read on the Internet does not appear to happen to any great extent, and that it does not adversely affect my system).
What I object to is not being informed that it is to be 'installed', again for want of a better word, to my system.

hmm i see, and hear.. its a tricky one to define, and is probably discussed somewhere else in the forum ..

i think cowsheep was talking about a service from a very old securom game.. but its a valid point.. too..

but honestly, i've discussed this whole thing many times, and am a bit bored with it (hence my shortness)..

if you do a sector scan on the disk, it'll report if securom (and safedisc and tages and some others) is present on the disk (note that an activation version might not have a disk signature present, or one without a disk check.. i've seen that a few times.. its rare though).. but usually to detect protection you generally do a scan of the installation folder as its more reliable

ProtectionID 6.4.0 is unable to determine the compressor/encryptor used in the newest versions of UltraISO. You might want to look into it. (Unless it's already done in unreleased betas... )

I have the same problem as mentioned in Post 496

Protection ID crashes instantly after starting the program
but as far as i know there is no program called unlocker installed on my pc

in a winXP vm the tool seem to run fine, even the scan over network works
but a sector scan for example would be difficult, even if the drive is provided to the vm the access is not direct, or am i wrong?

maybe there is another reason
my OS: Win 7 Professional x64

Guessing you are on windows 7? if so then that issue was fixed and will be in the next beta (coming quuite soon..but if anyone posts a 'can i have it?' or similar post then that will delay things). Network / remote sector scan is possible through iScsi. / Mapping etc, never tried it though (iscsi definately should work..50/50 on mapping)

Hi all,

I am currently puting together a beta of pid for android. Currently it detect SlideLock, admob and airpush based apps (not strictly protection i know, but still nice to have i think).

If anyone wants to beta test it please pm me, also if anyone has info or apks with protection on them please send them too :-) (pm me with a link or something)..

Other plans are to allow pid droid to communicate with pid windows to do scans etc and report back to the droid.. This will be in a future pid version.definately not in the next release (coming very soon)

Please note that pid droid and normal are two seperate projects and will have two seperate beta teams, so being on pid droid beta doesnt guarantee pid beta access, but we are flexible :-)

Ideas, comments welcome..

Thanks for your time
