Yeah, probably.  It looks like they used C-Dilla (aka safecast) from 2000 or
so to 2005 or so.  http://wiki.winehq.org/SafeDisc gives hope that Wine
will support safedisc one of these days.  Until then, at least I can make
sure there aren't any installer bugs in the free trials.

I'd rather not; running high-value commercial software from strangers
gives me the willies.  I'd rather get it from an authoritative source.
