Hello

I'm trying to make a msi of Casio fx-9860G calculator program. I'm using VMware server, and WininstallLE to create msi-packages, but the problem is that the Casio fx-9860G is protected with Starforce 3 (for some reason [:@]). Because of this, I get an error every time I try to install it in a virtual environment. Something about me having a virtual drive..

Is there any way to go around this, or do I have to use a clean physical machine for this package to work?

dunno if this will work but perhaps you could mount a physical drive and install it to another partition then switch the partition after capture.

Well, I don't think the problem is the virtual harddrive, but the virtual cd-rom. I get the same message if I try to install the app on a physical computer with ex Deamon Tools, or similar installed.

I have tried to talk with Casio, but they weren't very helpful..

Hi,

Did you manage to make a msi package of this product? I'm stuck with the same problem. Any possibilities for a silent install of this product?

No sorry, I didn't.

I installed the program manually instead... :-s

I think the only way to make this work is to use an physical computer instead of a virtual. Then the protection doesn't work the same way. I know other people have done that with this program.

Could you not 'Disconnect' the CD beforehand? Then, there's no CD for any program to *see*...

No, that didn't work either. I guess the "Starforce3" protection notices that you run the installation on a virtual machine / cd-rom. The program will not work if you copy it to the harddrive and run it from there either...

If it doesn't work in a virtual environment I guess the only option is to package this on a physical machine then.
