In Reply to One Program, one computer posted by Jimbon on April 11, 2007: Hi, I want to create a program which only can running in one computer? if the program move(using copy and paste) to another computer, it won't work? please help me out?
Your application must check some *unique* item when it is started, either hidden somewhere in Windows registry, or read directly from the hardware, such as the harddisk ID, or the presence of a "dongle" with a unique ID, and so on...
Your application's setup program must contain this unique data. And for every customer, you have to program a unique setup program.
My best advice is to look up some commercial solutions, have a look at Google with the keyword "copy protected application".
