And another issue that I don't want hacker to know which protector I'm using. If they don't know it will be a bit difficult to crack. :)

But having that keys in registry - it will be very easy to see which protector was used.

Under Protection Features ->File Analyzer Deception and select from the list Hide protection code with,but a good exe scanner will detect Enigma.
So will NEVER win a fight with a good Cracker Group, never.

I just mean if Enigma creates such registry keys in system registry it will be very easy to detect the protector.

Code: Select all

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Enigma Protector\F177dxxxxxxxxxxx-b1f2xxxxxxxxxxxx

If it is only single thing you are worry, then you may be quite, if cracker can't even determinate what protection is using (even if Enigma will not write keys to registry), then 100% he will be not be able to crack it or unpack.

Enigma protection is very strong, if you implemented some feature like RegCrypt markers then it just impossible to crack without valid registration key, or if you use Encrypt with Hardware ID feature - also, protected file will be impossible to crack without running on a PC with valid hardware id.

Using Virtual Machine and VM Markers also provides very high protection level, it will stop even very advanced crackers, or at least it will take too much time to decrypt the Virtual Machine.

Even without all of these options Enigma is very difficult to unpack/crack.

Thanks, I hope the protection is very strong. That's why I've bought it. :)

But my main worry is this:

Portable App Guidelines

A portable app works from any device (USB flash drive, portable hard drive, iPod, etc)
A portable app works as you move computers and your drive letter changes
A portable app's features continue working as you move computers
A portable app doesn't leave files or folders behind on the PC
A portable app doesn't leave registry entries behind except those automatically generated by Windows
A portable app is optimized for use on removable drives
A portable app doesn't require additional software on the PC
A portable app doesn't interfere with software installed on the PC

Just as a compromise, I can eliminate all sources that writes something to the registry, and compile a special release for you. Enigma will lost many features, but it will not write anything. But it is not a good idea, and I will not compile such version each time new version appears.

I think that there is nothing critical if Enigma writes couple keys to the registry.

What if you can add an option to Protection Features?
