Re: prevent running an application from another pc

IMHO the only way to do that is using some sort of license server in combination with DHCP server. You can ensure that a certain MAC address gets a suitable IP address with DHCP and your license server can deny access to applications trying to contact your server from another IP address. Another rather disgusting idea is to use JNI and an Windows XP activation like process involving the pc's hardware components. Both methods btw can more or less easily be cracked.
