The system does not prevent you from playing, installing, de-installing and re-installing your game.
On a side note.
2.17 Does SecuROM periodically compare game data with the transmitted license values?Note that this information is stored in an encrypted manner for obvious reasons, as otherwise it would be easily possible to cheat the DRM system.We should distinguish between (a) the online request for a license and the retrieval of such a license during the online activation process, and (b) the verification of the license at each application start.Day Limit (for example, the publisher can set the application to to run for only 10 days after the first launch) SecuROM stores the date and time of the first launch.2.2 What is SecuROM sending to the Product Activation Server?Protection setting Information stored in the DRM license information Online activation required Unlock code received after online activation.There is flexibility (set by the publisher, but defaults to 60) of allowed hardware changes before a new activation is required.Standalone normal probability distribution excel 2010 revoke tool: To find standalone revoke tools for your application please look in the popular titles section and for EA Games at the EA Support Website.A re-activation is necessary, after re-formatting a HDD and new Windows setup, as well as after creating a new Windows User account.
