'Traditionally' was the word I used when thinking about the fact that in the past - and still today in the apps worth keeping safe, vendors will query the hardware itself. As we all know from the ability of one to change the MACID reported by their OS, this [EDIT:] approach of asking Windows for the information [EDIT/] is clearly insufficient and somewhat amateurish.

Generally, the publications that continue to be difficult to beat are the ones that install drivers or services and from there can query hardware directly, running in a much less restrictive environment than an exe that's just been run.



However I digress - you've put succinctly the problem with the cpuid instruction - this is not a measure to obtain a unique serial number. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
