I am trying to use VB in MS Access to find a way to find a unique identifier of a thin client. I use this to discretely identiry who may have performed a particular action in the database. In the past, I have used
Dim objShell: Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
strPC = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%computername%")
on other projects. However, this returns the name of the server.
Is there a way to find somehting unique to the thin client? Session ID? Motherboard serial number. Thin client serial number?
