I need a small application coded in C# that is designed to create a hardware and software fingerprint that can identify a computer. This fingerprint should be based on the hard-coded serial numbers of the hardware contained in a computer, and the Windows versio and product ID key. This application must work flawlessly on Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP Home and Professional. Any completed application should be tested on all of the above mentioned platforms before submitting it for us for review.
This application should access the enum registry key in Windows to identify all hardware installed on the computer. Then each piece of hardware that is detected needs to be querried for its hard-coded serial number. Examples of hardware include the motherboard chipset, the video chipset, the hard drive, etc..). These serial numbers need to be stored in a local text file as a single running alpha-numeric expression, with each device name (as recorded from the enum key).
<Device>-<Serial Number>-<Device2>-<Serial Number 2>
Where the dashes are actual dashes in place for separation purposes (not subtraction).
Before payment is released, you must deliver a compiled .exe file for me to evaluate and test. We will test it on multiple computers and hardware configurations. Once application tests good, upload your source code and funds will be released.
Please keep all communications within RAC, and please do ask if you have a question. My budget on this application is no more than $150.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP Home and Professional.
