    Retrieving some unique information about the computer using Flash

    Level 7
      Hi!

      I am wondering if it is possible with Flash alone to access some unique
      information about the computer it is running on without the help of some
      external script/programs? I am not even sure what the unique information
      should be yet, maybe some serial number is stored somewhere, or something? A
      semi-unique information would be "ok" too.

      This should be workable at least for Windows operating system using Internet
      Explorer when running locally from the computer. (Would be nice if it works
      on other OS and browsers too).

      The purpose for this is to make some minor authentication verification. (I
      know this would require information about the computer to run the program on
      prior to be able to run it, but that is not a problem in my particular
      case).

      Thanks in advance.
