I ran into this 2 days ago, I downloaded a trial, installed it and started to examine it, splash screen is the usual "Buy Me" - "Try Me" - "Enter Reg Code" - clicking on the last option revealed an input form complete with arma HW Fingerprint - now even though I have successfully unpacked 1 of these, I usually automatically uninstall at this point, (way too big of a pain in the ass), - but for some reason I looked in the program directory and noticed 2 .exe files one was the app the other is called "activate.exe", hmmmmmmmm, so I unpacked the main app with no problem - runs great - apparently when the packed app is run it invokes "activate.exe", so apparently only that file is protected with HW Fingerprint.

The smartest technical solution is always trumped by the dumbest coder...

Which leads me to the question, I understand why it's so hard to unpack arma with HW Fingerprint when the trial is run out, (can't unpack it unless you can get past the gray box), but during the trial period why isn't it the same as any other arma target?
