    Processor ID / other unique values??

    lol. Yeah i just realised that tihs was from 04. :o. Anyways, it would be completely legal if you put it in the end user license agreement

    Odd question but needy solution

    also if it's just a set simple video, you might want to consider making it a GIF file and using it as your desktop background, as it will animate

    Processor ID / other unique values??

    Personally I think it's a bad idea to do any type of machine hardware checking. 1) people change things. 2) people buy new computers 3) just limit the how many times they can activate in a year and monitor all activations. Here's how I would do it. Check all hardware and send it to a database...

    encrypt password

    It doesn't anymore. The function was originally mid$ back in just BASIC, but now in .net you no longer need the $ character. As far as I know it was used so the interpreter would know what was a function or something.

    Finding Client IP

    lol. Apparently i dont need to connect to the client afterall... :rolleyes: I just thought i had to. Well, to make it short i didn't know that you could both read and write to the same stream without screwing everything up. Well that clears up what i had intended on doing with this program...

    Finding Client IP

    I know there's like professional or enterprise edition of visual basic, but it's not for a bussiness. And hey, express is free (the main reason i got it). Since this is just for my entertainment and learning purposes it doesn't make sense to buy it (at least not at this point in time).

    Finding Client IP

    I think visual basic hates me :p. At any rate, it seems that what you said would work, as long as your not behind a router (which I am, and almost all of the people I want to send this to are :o). When you're behind a router it sends your local IP like 10.40.0.100. I wonder what would happen...

    Finding Client IP

    I'm sorry I forgot to say that I was using visual basic .net 2005. It seems that in this version the only things in system.web are ASP functions. If anyone knows of another way that would work for 2005 express please tell me. EDIT: I checked the web developer and the http thing is there...

    Finding Client IP

    Finding Client IP [resolved] Sorry if this is in the wrong part of the forums, but I couldn't seem to find the right one for this particular case. So, I'm making a windows form to be a server for a chat program I'm making (internet chat). I'm creating a client, and the client knows which IP...

    Incredibly Large Numbers

    Yeah it's definitely not known as the program of choice, but I still need to take a course on c++, as i have yet to learn it extensively (I'm 16). I thought about making a large array of long numbers (which i think you suggested). Well, thanks for the reply... I'm off to writting large amounts...

    Incredibly Large Numbers

    To anyone reading, I was wondering if there was a good way to handle incredibly large numbers (on the order of 1,000,000 + digits). Is there any way to make visual basic actually recognize said numbers and use them in normal functions? (as in +, -, *, /, Mod, \, ^... etc) My best guess...

    multiple keypresses?

    I was wondering if you can make a form accept multiple keypresses? I was trying to make something and if you had 2 keys down at the same time it would only register as if only one of those 2 keys was held down. Any help would be appreciated.

    Desktop Resolution

    Nevermind I have been looking elsewhere and I've found out this can be done with the Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.(Height or Width)
