    Detect and disable network cards

    Hey

    I have an application in c# that i don't want it to connect to the internet in a virtual enironment, like virtualbox, vmware virtual pc and so on.
    Therefore i though that disabling the virtual network card inside the virtual machine would be a good idea.

    Do anyone know how to do that?

    Or any other idea that can push me in the right direction. Thanks.http://forums.codeguru.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

    If Blizzard can't do it (WoW vs WoWGlider), I doubt you'll be able to do so.

    You can disable a network interface using WMI or executing a command-line tool. However, there's no way to stop the user from just re-enabling the interface.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
