You are welcome.

There's not too much left to go wrong at this point. I'm heading off to the pool so if you do find anything I'll address it when I get back.

Technically, your funny machine is not cooperating with my licensing scheme and returns machine ID 0. It's not even supplying a system volume ID. Previously, I just rejected that in DGIndexNV at the time DGDecodeNV did not have the licensing check. I changed DGIndexNV to accept the special key so that users with such machines wouldn't be left out in the cold. But then when I added licensing to DGDecodeNV, I forgot to make this change to it. Now everything is consistent and you should run into only garden-variety bugs from now on, if at all. The crashing was me trying to free a null pointer in a rare condition that your machine triggered.

Good luck with your projects and welcome to the forum.

I found this while looking into the license thing a bit myself.


"""There is actually another way to uniquely identity each Windows PC. Open up Registry and navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cryptography

Find the key called “MachineGuid” this key is generated uniquely during the installation of Windows and it won’t change regardless of any hardware swap (apart from replacing the boot-able hard drive where the OS are installed on). That means if you want to keep tracking installation per OS this is another alternative. It won’t change unless you do a fresh reinstall of Windows."""

May be worth looking at as an additional options for a unique key, seems like the "rent a pc" option is becoming more prevalent.

Thanks again!

Thanks, I'll look into it. If the key is editable, however, that is a problem.

Hello,

I am currently experiencing the same problem. I'm also running Shadow computer (cloud PC) with a P5000.

Nvidia driver : 397.93
GPU : P5000
windows 10 x64 Home
Using lastest version dgdecnv2053.zip 2019-01-29 11:01 2.4M

I read all the thread but I can't find where the fix is.

:bow:

Sorry to hear you are having problems. Does your cloud PC work with other NVDec/CUVID applications? Also, if your cloud PC doesn't supply a good hardware serial ID then things may be bad for you. :?

I thought the problem of goonie had been solved. I do not know how to test other NVDec / CUVID applications.
I used to use my license (paid!) on an old computer but is much less efficient.

DGIndexNV.exe does not open at all, it's painful. Is there nothing you can not do?

I have decided to support only real PCs that can satisfy my licensing scheme. If your "PC" cannot supply valid unique serial numbers via standard Windows APIs then it is not supported. Talk to your "PC" supplier and ask about that.
