Copy Protection Query?

vbimport

#1

Heya Guys,

I am trying to make a copy of an SQL training cd I got recently, I consider myself fairly tech savvy but certainly no pro. Normally I use a combination of either ProtectionID or Burnout to identify copy protection software, but neither work to identify the copy protection on this cd. Output from Protection ID is as follows:

Scanning -> G:\SQL User\Xtras\Proj.dll
File Type : 32-Bit Dll (Subsystem : Win GUI / 2), Size : 159744 (027000h) Byte(s)
[File Heuristics] -> Flag : 00000000000000000000000000000000 (0x00000000)
[CompilerDetect] -> Visual C/C++
[SIZE=1][!] File appears to have no protection or is using an unknown protection

    Scanning -> G:\SQL User\Xtras\Projctrc.dll

    [File Heuristics] -> Flag : 00000000000000000000000000000000 (0x00000000)
    [/SIZE][CompilerDetect] -> Visual C/C++
    [SIZE=1][!] File appears to have no protection or is using an unknown protection
  • Scan Took : 0.906 Second(s)
    Scanning -> G:\setup.exe
    File Type : 32-Bit Exe (Subsystem : Win GUI / 2), Size : 294912 (048000h) Byte(s)
    [File Heuristics] -> Flag : 00000000000000001000000000000000 (0x00008000)
    [/SIZE][-= Installer =-] InstallShield v12.0.0.53157 Setup Module
    [CompilerDetect] -> Visual C/C++
    - Scan Took : 0.922 Second(s)

    Looks like they used Macromedia director to compile the software.

Any ideas on how to make an exact copy of this cd.

Cheers :slight_smile:

Would you please also scan the installation directory on your HDD ?

In case you’ve already burned a copy or mounted an image in a virtual drive:
Which error message exactly do you get ?

Heya,

Some additional info about my query. I tried burning the CD using CloneCD and Alcohol 120% using the protected CD option, it didn’t work. The files on the were complied using macromedia director from my investigations, certainly the .exe was.

Any ideas?
