Yes, not only me but many others are also aware of these practical difficulties ... After all, this is a forum for members advanced in RE

What I ( and I presume others following this thread) are looking for, is mainly an account of how you actually managed to achieve it, so that we could possibly replicate it .

Articles are numerous and while they are useful, since you'd specifically stated earlier in this thread that "I was unable to get this software to work but by Modifying Vmware using a Custom BIOS I was able to defeat all the targets with virtual machine detection in VMWare Environment .. " , we are looking to see a practical example of how you managed to accomplish it...

In fact, content from this repo is still relevant but seems to fail when attempting to bypass the VM Check of VMP 3.1 ..
These steps still continue to work on a majority of targets...

As I said earlier, a good PoC would be if you could show us an example of how a VM Check of an executable protected with VMProtect >v3.1 could be bypassed without any modification to the executable (or to its image in memory using a loader etc) itself, as we are already well aware of how to do so when we are allowed to patch the executable or its memory space.

Thank you
