Given my past experience with drm problems, I wouldn't be surprised if they just send you a threatening response concerning piracy in the near future.

Glad they sorted it out.
Could you please post that key and the changes for future SecuRom sufferers?

Sure thing!

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\GlobalFlag

Changed the hex value from 400 to 40000400

If anyone knows what this actually DID... that would be cool.

I believe that enables a close exception, or a bad handle exception
Though I have to admit I haven't looked at global flag settings in a long time.
It's basically just a way to ignore invalid handles.
If I'm right it's just the most basic workaround they could manage.

Sounds like Mag has been playing with Gflags.exe.

Global flags are "used to enable various internal debugging, tracing, and validation support in the operating system" including heap control (special memory regions used by programs). Normally, the Global Flags are set to zeros. Setting certain flags enables special handling of memory space and OS handling of exceptions. Software that uses the global flags are digging deep into your system. You can be sure of that.
