Shell Windows

    Hello to all.
    I am using DOShack mxj object to get SYSTEMINFO from a Windows machine. In Max window I receive Product ID for the computer. How can I extract the number it displays inside Max? Is this a secure way to authenticate for each computer?
    Thanks!

      i can't tell you if it's a secure way to find a unique ID. if theres a print object thats where the messages come from. if not try mxj syscommand. it is a little bit different but has outputs to evaluate results of the external command.O.

      I am still trying to find how to get the specific number I want, as whenever I send SYSTEMINFO the mxj object spits out dozens of lines. However I can't find how to extract only the number I want.
      For example I use the same process in Mac using the shell object and I send the message:
      ioreg -││grep IOPlatformSerialNumber
      [shell]
      regexp "=(.*)"
      Which gives me the result I want. However, I have tried many different combinations but I can't figure out how to extract the value.
      Many thanks!
