Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 - SafeDisc DRM works after update

Postby ridgeraiser » Thu Sep 10, 2015 1:07 pm

Already in the new Windows 10 games with SafeDisc copy protection will no longer work. Yesterday Microsoft has disabled the published update KB3086255 the SafeDisc driver, this update has now been included for Windows 7 and Windows 8 in the Windows updates. Reason for the forced update is that Windows 10 does not allow deep interventions more outside programs like the driver "secdrv.sys" (SafeDisc) for security reasons. Because like viruses are infiltrates through the "secdrv.sys" program. We ask ourselves, have games that require this service or program, thus now the look? Players must hope for an update of their game or purchase the game again at GOG? The answer is no, because there is help for you!


But there is salvation for Battlefield 1942, Sim City 4 and other games!

By entering with administrator privileges to the Service service can be reactivated. The commands for this are:

By entering with administrator privileges to the Service service can be reactivated. The commands for this are:


sc config secdrv start= demand (Service starts when required)

sc config secdrv start= auto (Service always starts)

sc config secdrv start= disabled (Disabling the Driver Starts)



These settings are permanent and remain even after a restart condition. For short-term use of SafeDisc games but rich also these commands:

sc start secdrv (Manually Starting )

sc stop secdrv (Manual shutdown)


Thus, the possibility of using games with SafeDisc, after all, still given under the older operating systems. Microsoft warns but not to activate SafeDisc because of possible attacks on existing vulnerabilities in drivers.

Please share this article on other networks and forums so that everyone knows what he has to do now?!
