Solve Your Clcd32.dll Problems

The clcd32.dll module and the first version of SafeDisc work together in order to provide the users of the parent application with its integrated functions. SafeDisc and the module clcd32.dll are copy protection applications designed as a unified program that can protect contents of commercially available compact discs. The cdcd32.dll file is often found on PC game discs that are protected by SafeDisc.

Developed by two leading companies (C-Dilla and MacroVision), SafeDisc and the clcd32.dll file were made in order to stop destructive hackers and commercial pirates from developing illegal copies to sell on the black market.

SafeDisc technology is software-based and uses a combination of authenticating digital signatures embedded on the disk. It also uses an encryption wrapper that secures the contents of the CD. A CD protected by SafeDisc will have the following files on the CD (apart from the clcd32.dll module):

* 00000001.tmp

* clcd16.dll

* clokspl.exe

* dplayerx.dll

* <game_name>.exe

* <game_name>.icd

SafeDisc (often called C-Dilla because of the company that developed it) is today’s most commonly used CD protection tool. The clcd32.dll file is an important component of the SafeDisc protection. Along with the other files, the clcd32.dll module encrypts and decrypts security codes assigned by the SafeDisc program’s protection methods on discs.

On the CD, the <game_name>.exe file contains the SafeDisc protection whereas the <game_name>.icd file contains the original game executable in its encrypted form. It also includes within it some anti-disassembling procedures that make it difficult to trace the code. The clcd32.dll module is a function called to assign a 32 bit security code to the disc, which is done every time the disc is inserted to a CD drive.

SafeDisc divides the .exe file into two parts, the first one stores only the decrypting information that is used to decrypt the second part and contains no important code. The .exe executable is only a loader that decrypts and loads the protected game executable in the encrypted .icd file. The most important file of the SafeDisc protection, the clokspl.exe file, then calls the clcd32.dll module to calculate the decryption key based on a number of conditions.

The calculation result is then incorporated with the current date, which means that the code is not the same as each day passes. Eventually, the second part of the .exe file decrypts a small routine in the memory that contains the address for calling the dplayerx.dll module and the correct decryption key.

What is a DLL?

Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.

DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.

When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.

Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.

We Guarantee To Solve Your Clcd32.dll Problems

Most non-Microsoft DLL’s are copyrighted so downloading them from other websites or software is often illegal and bundled with spyware or other malicious programs.

Our ITZooka software contains Microsoft DLL’s and will detect, download and install missing or corrupt Microsoft DLLs. However, fixing non-Microsoft DLLs like clcd32.dll usually takes some expert knowledge and manual work.
