2 PCs both same works Id

  Rtus 17:44 01 Jan 2007

Ive been trying out SIW (System information by Gabriel Topola) I have in front of me a E370 2yr old Xp home based machine with Works6 & a brand new Compac 2019 running Windows media center with works8 loaded odd thing is they both report having the same product Id number. Anyone come across that before?

Where is product ID reported?

Software - Operating System

Actually, it could be something to do with OEM sales - can't see how else they could have it.

they are both OEM bundled products. but would have thought they would have different Product Id numbers!,If this is how it works normally ,how do M/S tell its genuine? or on the correct machine?
