So you paid for Alcohol 120%, used the A-Ray scanner and got yourself a perfect image of your game on your hard drive. Then you try to run it and get a message that you have emulation software (no duh!), so it won’t run YOUR game, and it wants you to go to securom.com for details!? But no.
Go to m$.com, search for and download a program called “subinacl”.
Then run the .msi to install it. (W2k, XP and 2k3 only).
Create a new shortcut with this command line:
“C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\subinacl.exe” /keyreg “\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\Devicemap\SCSI\SCSI Port 4” /deny=administrators=r
You must change the “4” in the command line to the number of the SCSI Port where all your emulated drives are. Use regedit and then follow the tree down to find out where they are. If this is too much info, don’t try this!!!
This little trick hides your emulated drives from prying little programs that have no business lookin at yer system’s undersides! It is reset at reboot so you will have to run this little command again to rehide your drives. Enjoy. I’m happily playing KOTOR2 from an emulated drive. Look ma, no discs!
