As currently it is nearly impossible to get around this protection with anything at-home users can purchase. Ohh well though, this just means that I have to play XIII from the slow-ass cd-drive.
You said yourself it is nearly impossible but not impossible.
They make it hard because they can. They are quite smart by JUST staying in the lines of “the law”. It would be impossible to make backups of their cd’s if their cd’s were hexagonal or had an alien element in them:confused: , because how would we make “backups”?

And as for file checking: you are supposed to check the files on your hard drive after installing. most apps are packed using installshield so the main exe will only be available after installing.
Actually, Setups are only a set of command that unpack the files from the game’s compressed .cabs or something. If you open a .cab or .msi file with Winrar you can quite easily unpack one file, but most setup .cabs these days are ‘corrupted’.
