Hi all,

How can I block the software from sending information or exposing some other way to software vendor, through which software vendor can have evidence that we are using pirated software and sue us.

If you are saying about blocking the connection for application at Inbound and Outbound communications at Windows Firewall level, my question is, to which executable file you will block?

For example, I have already cracked the AutoCAD software, and I don't want it to have any communication and want to block on Windows Firewall, I don't think just blocking acad.exe (the main application file for AutoCAD) is enough, since there are many executable files in AutoCAD installed folder on C Drive, probably most of the executable are capable of sending information? so do we need to block all executable from AutoCAD installation folder? and I am seeing it has 39 executable (applications type) files, so does it require to block each of 39 files? Is executable only the file capable of communicating and sending info?

As per forums rules we cannot help with illegal software https://www.techsupportforum.com/for...ork&page=rules thread closed.
joek0617 and vanukuru.vinod like this.

Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.
