You are right, some people won't know how to crack the game. Most probably those are the people that payed money for the game and now can't make a legitimate backup copy and/or have to wait for the "disc verification" every time they run the game. The people that download your game from the net or even make money by selling unauthorized copies will know how to crack it - there is no doubt. But to answer your question: I highly doubt an effective "Copy Protection" can be created with NSIS alone. Of course such software exists and it could be integrated in NSIS via the Plugin interface. But you would have to buy/license that software from a company like Sony or Protection Technology. That won't be cheap...

Why not add a simple serial key to your application? This can be easily implemented in NSIS and it won't need a crappy "Disc Protection" system...

My Plugins: StdUtils | NSISList | CPUFeatures | ExecTimeout | KillProc
