    activation mechanism for flash exe via actioscript

    negentro
      I intend to develop and sell a flash app that will be distributed as an EXE.
      I'm thinking about a mechanism to activate the app once a user pays for it
      and then tie the activated copy to the user's machine..
      Is there a way, using actionscript or any other flash mechanism, to

      1- grab a unique ID of some sort of the user's machine (e.g. partial windows' product ID and or partial motherboard product ID)
      2- store that value in the registry.

      The idea is, if the user moved his copy of the app to another machine, he'd not be able to use the app.
      thanks in advance.
