SecuROM Support Information
We apologize for the problems you are experiencing. If your software title launch problem cannot be solved with the hints listed in the Messages section, please send a detailed error description and a SecuROM analysis file to email@example.com. Please consult the following steps to generate this analysis file.
We developed this easy-to-use and effective error analysis tool to retrieve information necessary to locate the problem. The information contained in the analysis file is compressed and encrypted.

- Make sure the original disc (play or launch disc) is in a local CD or DVD-ROM drive.
- Please reboot your computer and do not start any additional applications.
- "Right-click" (click the right button of your mouse) on the desktop shortcut or actual executable.
- A dialog menu will appear. Choose "Launch Analysis" from the menu choices.
- After selecting "Launch Analysis," a disclaimer window will appear.
- To proceed, please click onto the "Yes" button.
- The program will now generate an "AnalysisLog.sr0" file within the root of your C:\ directory.
- Please "zip" (archive) this file (to avoid email corruption) and send it to our official email address firstname.lastname@example.org together with a description of your problem (e.g. screenshots, further details).
If you can't perform the right-click procedure, please follow these steps:
Please be informed the SecuROM analysis file does not contain any personal information. It contains only SecuROM related information, which allows us to analyze and solve your problem.
- Make sure that your original play/application disc is in your local CD or DVD drive.
- Please re-start your computer.
