I'm about to finish writing beta version of my first plugin. I am going to be very selective as to who uses it. I want to prevent any potential pirating (I know nothing is foolproof). Is there a way I can limit my code to run on a specific machine?
Someone mentioned using the,
ms win install guid
pc network name
to confirm the machine. Is there a function or header file that I should be looking into?
( The scope of my knowledge is C++, the Maya API and rudimentary STL. )
