    Hardware specific programs?


    Is their anyway to make a program only work on one computer? Or a specific computer? Which reminds me, I saw a post about getting a motherboard serial number, are they unique to each PC?

    uhm


    you can read the serial code of your motherboard.
    There's a code who change for each motherboard.
    In Delphi Super Page there's a component who could help you..but i don't remember the name of that component.
    Anyway you could read a specific sector on your hdd, or you can do somethings else.
    The way of God are infinites..

    Hi,

    You have to use things such as MAC addresses (NIC ID) or
    use HDD serial numbers or use the CPU internal id, not all CPUs
    have such an ID.

    Using a combination of all 3 should help you nail down particular
    systems hardware wise.
