Create function that returns a string based on the hardware of a computer. It needs to take information from hard drive, sound card, network card, graphic card, etc. Return information in a string like this: harddrive_38438434_soundcard_08234959_networkcard_848578448 ... and so forth. The goal is to generate a different string for each computer, unless two computer have exactly the same hardware. I'd like the code in Python if possible. If not, in C/C++. The platform is WinXP. Added to clarify: The number, or data - it doesn't have to be a number, is some information to uniquely identify that hardware. For the hard drive it could be the time to which it was initialized. For the network card it could be the MAC adress. I'm not sure how to uniquely identify other hardware, such as sound cards, but that would be your job to find out. Here is a complete list of all the hardware I'd like included. If a computer doesn't have a certain piece of hardware it is of course omitted. hard drive sound card graphics card wired network card wireless network card modem motherboard Some machines may have more than one of the above advices, include them all if so.
