I have never done this as I tend to write web applications, but, I have heard of people doing the following with a good success rate.

When the user installs the application the must activate it, much like Windows now does. On activation, the software gathers certain information about the computer, some examples are processor id, memory id, motherboard manufacturer, ect. You grab this info and smash it together into say a string and that is not the computers unique ID. You also send the user a key that you generate. When the program trys to activate you check first that the generated key hasn't been used, if it has, check that the unique ID matches.

There is one flaw to this type of validation. If the user upgrades that computer, they will get a new processor id, or memory id, ect (depending on what they upgrade of course). There are solutions to this issue as well but I'll leave that all up to you.

Hope that helps, if you need some more help on this I have thought about this fairly heavily and maybe be able to provide more suggestions.
