Hi,

does anybody know which computer ID is used for activation of market products by MT4? Is it the volume serial number? 

Thanks in advance. I appreciate any suggestions very much.

Thank you very much for your response. However, some beginner tutorials do not answer the questions. 

I am asking which machine ID is used by MQL to limit the access to a given computer. Is it the hard disk serial number? Or some other machine ID I don't know of yet.

it is per hardware and per OS (I am sorry if I understood it wrong).

No problem, and thanks for the additional answer. :)

I assumed it was hardware, but not sure if it is the hard disk serial number or some other stuff I never heard of.

This OS relationship will bring a lot of troubles when traders will have to move to Server 2016/2019 when 2012 R2 is out of support. From that point on each major/minor Windows update (twice a year?) requires an additional activation (as it is required with Windows 10 too). Hopefully Metaquotes will provides a solution therefore.
