How to get the BIOS serial #

How can I get the BIOS Serial No. of the machine running my Delphi 5.0 programs?

By the way: is really this number UNIQUE to each PC?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

     I too want to get BIOS Serial Number. In my project I use CBDetect.com and I receive information about bios in file.

ShellExecute(BiosForm.Handle, 'Open','cbdet.com','-q detect','.', SW_HIDE);
Sleep(2500);
Memo1.Lines.LoadFromFile('detect.txt');
DeleteFile('detect.txt');

If its OK for you I send you cbdet.com. Its work with Award Bios.

I think that BIOS Serial number is not UNIQUE to each PC, computer with identical motherboard and BIOS have identical number.

No. The BIOS serial number identifies the motherboard: manufacturer, model, bios, Bios date, etc.

I've written a component, TASCpuInfo, that does that. It's freeware and can be downloaded from:

It also gives you other very useful information on the CPU and BIOS.

Yours,

Alex
