Like FairUse4WM and FreeMe2, Automate unDRM v2.0 is a WMV DRM Removal freeware which can help you remove DRM protection from WMV, ASF and WMA files.

Please note that:

  • Automate unDRM v2.0 can't crack DRM license, but it just removes DRM header of the media file. So you must have VALID license to play your DRM files well on your computer. 

  • Also, automate unDRM works only with Windows Media Player 9 or (unless you update your drbdbg.exe).

  • Automate unDRM v2.0 is intended to be used to make fair-use backups only. Please do not abuse this rule.

For most of the people, Automate unDRM is too complicated to use. Worse, this software cannot keep up to date to work with Windows 10/8/7. Therefore, you may need an alternative for Automate unDRM to remove DRM from WMV or WMA easier and quicker.

By the way, this software is fully compatible with Windows 10/8/7/XP and there is no need to add any plug-in for running this software correctly. Free download the trial version of the program and have a try now.

Many freeware once can break DRM protection. FairUse4WM, FreeMe2 and Automate unDRM are used to creak DRM from Windows media files, while myFairTunes and QTFairUse can bypass DRM from iTunes M4P songs.  However, all of these programs have a common drawback - they cannot work with the latest computer's OS or the latest iTunes. In other words, they are out of date. Luckily, there are some up-to-date DRM removals for your choice:

They are all compatible with Windows 10 or macOS Sierra. You can download the free trial version to have a try if necessary.
