I agree, this is not an issue with Copy Protection, this is an issue
where the installer thinks that the installer is already running.

A couple of questions

-Have you tried running the PhysX installer manually, after the game
is installed?
-Have you tried running wineboot to make sure any run entries are
cleared and then running the PhysX installer manually?
-Any idea what brand of installer it is (InstallShield, MSI, WISE, or
some other)?  If you aren't sure, I can always take a look at the
installer, if you will bzip and send to me (less than 10mb).
