    Hardware ID

    I need to access the serial numbers of several devices including, the HDD, motherboard, memory, NIC, etc...

    In a thread I previously posted, I was redirected to diskid32, which was a lot of help; however, I could't find a way to create handles to different devices.

    Basically, I am writing a program that determines an ID based on the computer's hardware, such that an installed program won't run if a specified number of devices are changed. This is for a company btw.

    Thanks,

    WMI Classes would probably be a good starting point.
