    I'm working on a customer project, where I need to lock the user software to a certain board type and serial number. I have found the way to retrieve the serial number (GetSerialNumber) but how do I retrieve the board type? Is it incorporated into the serial number?

    Hi Jan,

    Generally products are licensed to a particular serial number, not really to a board type. Therefore we don't provide a way to fetch the board type.

    In general, if you want to license your software to clients, you get their serial number, and then do some sort of comparison operation based on information returned by GetSerialNumber.

    Best regards,
