Make a script that works only on one PC

5 posts in this topic

Another part of a project I`m working on...

The idea here is that the script generates a unique ID (using the ID generator in the Examples section) he emails me the ID, I use the stringencrypt function on it and send it back to him.

The program then accepts the string and allows the program to run.

Would this be a simple string compare function or something else?

The script will not be compiled, but it will be obuscated, it make it unreadable.

I know there is a trial function in the examples section, but I don`t want to make the software a trial one, just ensure that only one person can use it.

Thanks as Always.

why not use DriveGetSerial ( "Drive" ) as part of the code he returns to you.

you could retreive it , convert it to asci chrs or something, he then wouldnt know he's returning his drive serial number, unless he's clever, and it could be part of the return code he gives to you.

you could then decrypt it, know his drive serial number and pass the result back so that if serial = serial then run.

its not failsafe as many harddisks have the same serial but not many.

just an idea.

How about using the MAC address?

Good Idea!, less recognisable than a drive serial I think.
