Has anyone made or found a reset DRM for Windows 8.1 WMC? The Windows 7 one doesn't work on Windows 8.1

You have to extract cleandrm.exe from the resetdrm.exe file. It works with all versions of windows.

Use winrar or 7zip to extract it and run "cleandrm.exe -v" from an elevated command prompt (as administrator).

If you open ResetDRM.exe in WinRAR or 7zip, you will see 3 files

Code: Select all

ADVPACK.DLL
CleanDRM.exe
resetdrm.inf
Extract CleanDRM.exe...

For convenience I placed the ResetDRM file with the individual extracted files under "Third Party Programs" here...
