Unique computer ID
>I need to be able to identify a unique computer ID (for windows and mac) using studio 8.0.
I’m guessing this might be unique:
From the What’s New in 8.0.3 PDF –
> Hardware ID
> There is a new function in the Web commands external component OWEB.$gethardwareid() that returns a string ID that identifies the hardware on which Omnis Studio is currently running. This new function replaces sys(227) which has been removed.
$gethardwareid() in Studio 8.1 matches what sys(227) returns in Studio 6.1 on the same Mac, and a Mac VM returns a different value on that same Mac. But you’ll want to test further yourself, before assuming the IDs are unique.
