Finding out the HardwareID of your machine of Exponare, MapXtreme or MapInfo Discover

The method to discover the HardwareID depends on the Pitney Bowes software that you have installed:

1) For Encom Discover, Discover3D, MapInfo-Discover Bundle, Engage and Engage 3D
  • From the Windows start menu, locate the application named "Encom license Manager". The path is usually Start menu-> All Programs > Encom Programs > License Manager. The License Manager will be automatically installed as part of the Discover/Engage install.
  • In the License Manager, go to the "Activate software" tab. The HardwareID will be displayed there (it is automatically generated by the License Manager, unique to this computer)
