Hardware ID Generator

The SoftCo10 architecture employs a licence-per-machine model: A server licensed to run a SoftCo10 application is identified by its hardware ID (HWID), a unique 'fingerprint' of the machine’s profile based on its serial number and configurations of key hardware components.


You obtain this unique ID by running the HWID generator tool locally on the machine that requires a licence. After you send the generated HWIDs for all the machines requiring licences to the SoftCo email address, you will quickly receive an encrypted licence key that specifies which machines can run specific SoftCo10 components.


Note that this single licence key is administered using the SoftCo10 Manager tool, which also provides a table listing machines, their HWIDs, and the applications they are allowed to run.


Windows prerequisites: Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5 is required.


Designated to run on the following OS versions:

- Windows Server: 2008 SP2, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2
