Are you sure that the DEMO of a game which comes as a TORRENT download uses a
StarForce protection? I thought that StarForce protection was for checking for
original CD and this demo does not use any CD... Is it really StarForce or is
XtreamLok something else?

The demo is a whopping 3.5 gig download, setup unpacked 4,2 gig, installed 6,3
gig makes a temporary total of 14 gig ... what kind of stuff did those people smoke?
Their website is flash only which is simply unfriendly as hell.

Ok, back to topic.
The game is secured with softwrap 7.x (aka Xtreamlok) software protection.
The protector employs several advanced anti debugging/detection measures.
It fails in first place due to insufficiency of wine crypt32 module (not all
APIs are available/functional).
You can't get this information by relay/trace because softwrap uses its own
imports resolver/fixup code which doesnt leave any trace.
It uses crypt32 APi it to verify and transfer digital signatures online.

You can work around this by using native crypt32.dll and its msasn1.dll
dependency. Putting both into installation directory will be fine.
Set dll override to use native version first.

The next showstopper is because softwrap tries to open volume "c:" directly
using "\\.\<driveletter>:" form.
This obviously wont work because neither symlink nor fake harddisk volume exist
(e.g. <winedir>/dosdevices/c:: -> blah)
