Hello,

How can I protect my code in .NET (web or windows application), so that it runs only on particluar system. I mean to protect it from being copied to another computer. How can I get any parameters of the system, that are unique, and bind my program to them?

Thanks,
Alex

Use a dongle based protection
KEY-LOK, MatrixLock et. al.
Everything without something stored on the dongle that you need in your program can be faked...
(even dongles might have problems when virtual machines are in play).

Google around for it.
