1 How can I ban some Hardware IDs in my new protected application without using the License Manager?

You just need to create an ANSI text file called "InvalidateHWid.txt" in the same folder as your unprotected application. Inside that file, you put in each line the Hardware IDs to invalidate. Example: 1111-2222-3333-4444-5555-6666-7777-8888 1A41-8212-7F2A-1B32-1811-AA4B-2122-91E1…

2 Is it possible to lock an application to multiple machines with Hardware Lock?

We don't have any solution to get the same machine id for specific machines that you select. You could do the following workaround: 1) Get the Hardware ID of each machine that you want (calling WLHardwareGetId) 2) Create a new license and in the "Custom Data"…

3 How do I check if a user has entered a valid hardware ID without any typos?

You can just use the function WLHardwareCheckID. That function returns if a Hardware ID is valid or not.

4 I want that my application only runs when registered, so I have checked the option "Application only runs when registered" (in Registration panel). The problem is that I want to display the hardware ID but my application won't boot up if not license is present, so I don't have the chance to call WLHardwareGetId.

If you check the option "Application only runs when registered", WinLicense won't start your application at least that a license is present. If you just want to display the Hardware ID, you can just go to the "Customized Dialog" panel and edit the "MsgID34:…

5 I have enabled "PC Hardware" and "U3 USB" hardware locking, but when my application calls WLHardwareGetId it returns 0000-0000-0000-0000-0000....? What's wrong?

Please, notice that if you are enabling both type of locking (PC and U3), WinLicense first retrieve the PC Hardware and later the U3 Hardware. So, if there is no U3 USB (or not compatible) connected, the reported hardware ID is 0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000…

6 Can my application accept licenses locked to PC hardware and also licenses locked to a U3 USB stick?

Yes. Since WinLicense 2.0.6 you can select both "PC Hardware" and "U3 USB" hardware locking on a single application. Notice that in case that you want a specific customer to lock the license to his "PC Hardware", you have to send him an application which…

7 How can I enable hardware lock in smartkey protection? Can you give me some examples?

You can create Hardware locked smartkeys with WinLicense easily. For example, you just need to go to the “License Manager” panel and add a new license inserting Hardware ID before generating the license. The generated license can be only installed in…

8 I changed my protected project to accept lock to PC Hardware and U3 Hardware at the same time but I don't know how to get the correct hardware ID from my application depending on user choice (PC or External hardware) because the SDK function "WLHardwareGetID" has no parameter to get the desired ID

If you protect your application with PC Hardware and U3 Hardware, then: 1) WinLicense gets the PC Hardware ID and compares it with the one inside the license. 2) If the PC Hardware ID does not match with the one in license, WinLicense retrieves the U3 Hardware…

9 If I set BIOS changes to 0 in the HardwareLock panel, does it mean that the User can change the BIOS unlimited times or the User cannot change BIOS?

BIOS Changes to 0 means that no Hardware changes are allowed. As soon as your customer changes the BIOS in his computer, the license will not work anymore.

10 If I format my computer, will the Hardware ID change?

The Hardware ID will not change when you format your hard drive. WinLicense gets the real hard drive serial number and not the volume serial number (which is the one that changes after you format your hard drive). If you create a license locked to a specific…
