How can I debug a seemingly hardware-dependent issue with my Android app without access to the hardware?
by mii in Android

I have an open-source application on the Android market. It seems to work fine for me (with over 1,000 active installs, I have to presume that it works for most people).

I recently got a bug report that indicated a problem for at least three users on Samsung phones (Intercept and Captivate). I have been unable to reproduce the problem on my ADP2 and on the emulator.

Is there a way to translate a character to its corresponding hardware scan code (not the virtual key code)? I need that to communicate with ancient hardware device.

Is there a software/hardware combination that will let you control a at the hardware level via USB?
by davidg in Web Design

What I'm looking for is a device that does the following:

One end has a male VGA and a USB cable. This end gets plugged into any pc or server device that has the correct outputs.
The other end is just USB and gets plugged into a laptop cable.
In between is a "something" that grabs the VGA output and can pass USB back to the target from software running on the laptop.

hardware-locked licensing: which hardware pieces should i use?
by chr6 in Programming Languages

I've recently implemented a hardware-locked licensing system with fuzzy-matching to handle changes in hardware without requiring a re-activation, but i need more hardware pieces to match to be more secure / create more reliable fuzzy-matching.

Right now I'm matching against the following:

Physical mac address
Hard-drive serial number
RAM part number / manufacturer

Desktop Computer Hardware Vs. Server Hardware

How to implement floating point division in binary with no division hardware and no floating point hardware
by Traveling around the world in Programming Languages

I am wondering how to implement IEEE-754 32-bit single precision floating point division in binary with no division hardware and no floating point hardware?

I have shifting hardware, add, subtract, and multiply.

I have already implemented floating point multiplication, addition, and subtraction using 16-bit words.

I am implementing these instructions on a pro

What Is IR Hardware?

Hardware RNG - How to use?
by Matthew Steed in Programming Languages

Ok, I've just picked up a hardware RNG and it contains some simple functions as below,

GetRandomBytes(UInt Length,out object Array)
GetRandomDoubles(UInt Length,out object Array)

The functions seem to explain themselves pretty well, how would one use these functions effectivly to generate a number between a certain range?

Hardware IDs using VB 6
by Franklin Henderson in Programming Languages

It's a long time that I have given up MS platform and was working on open source, now I'm in a situation where I need user Hardware info. All hardware IDs of all devices of system including BIOS info. so I decided to go for VB6. It's easy in other languages, but they need dot net framework installed. How can this be done in VB6 alone.

Help with Hardware ID
by David Mercer in Programming Languages

I'm using C# and .NET 2.0. My app needs some way to check the different users so I'll use hardware id, but I saw that I can use only:

mac address - easily changeable and not everybody have it // NO
processor id - using WMI it returns a value for the cpu model, it's not unique // NO
motherboard serial - not every motherboard have it // NO
the Windows's volume serial - I'm
