Here’s my problem, in a nutshell:
My DVD drive does not read DVDs, but does read CDs. The game is on a DVD, which makes it impossible to install or play it.
However I do have a second computer, and the DVD drive on it is able to read it fine, but doesn’t have good enough specs to play the game.
I legally own the game, and have full and legal access to both computers.
So here’s what I am considering doing:
Method 1: Find a way to insert the disc into computer 2’s DVD drive, then install it from there onto computer 1, and play it from computer 1. Remote desktop, maybe? It will work better if I don’t have to have the disc in either computer 1 or 2’s drive to play it once installed.
Method 2: Similar to 1, but more straightforward. Make an ISO on computer 2, transfer the ISO to 1, load and play the ISO on 1.
However I suspect either way I will run into copy protection which is why I posted it in this forum. So I’m looking to know both what sort of measures will be required to get around the copy protection on TQ: IT (which is very annoying, and has already proven to make play near impossible if triggered) and how feasible those workaround measures are. Can those things even be done? If not, I guess I’ll just have to buy another drive, but if I can find a workaround, that’d be a lot better.
