Fuck Securom (Error 5003)

January 2nd, 2010

I bought Crysis so I could play a Mechwarrior mod with it.  When I tried to start it, a window popped up saying:

A required security module cannot be activated. This program cannot be executed (5003).

One of my friends located the explanation.  Indeed, I had IDA Pro running in the background.

Good job, guys.  That will really prevent piracy, a lot.  You are great at what you do.

    Funny you mention this — I just ran into this a few days ago myself, but it involved Process Explorer (as it leaves behind its driver). Using Winobj to lock down ACLs bypassed the issue, but at the expense of my time. How SecuROM isn’t classified as malware is beyond me.
