HWID, how many?

5 posts in this topic

Hey,

I'm a bit confused right now. I use these 4 lines to get some Hardware ID's:

Global $HWID1 = _WinAPI_UniqueHardwareID()
Global $HWID2 = _WinAPI_UniqueHardwareID($UHID_CPU)
Global $HWID3 = _WinAPI_UniqueHardwareID($UHID_HDD)
Global $HWID4 = _WinAPI_UniqueHardwareID($UHID_BIOS)

Could someone explain me if these outputs (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx) are legit ? And is the 2nd Hardware ID from my CPU the 3rd my HDD ? I'm really confused because on the internet many people speak from THE Hardware ID like it is one.

Many people are wrong, you are right.

Your cpu is a piece of hardware, as is your disk and bios chip.

But are these ID's supposed to be that long ?(I think ~ 32 numbers)

I think it is a hash of whatever value the hardware provides. You can look inside that function you are using to see how it is created.

Yes, I'll do, thanks :D

Edit: I think I get it, why it is a UNIQUE Hardware ID ;D
