How do I obtain my hostid?

Problem description: 

I'm being asked for a hostid in order to get a PLECS license. Is this the same as my machine host name? Where can I access this information on my computer?


PLECS licenses are typically tied to a combination of your personal login name and the 12-character hexadecimal MAC address of the local area network (LAN) ethernet card in your computer.

You can obtain this information from within PLECS as follows:

  1. Select PLECS License Manager from the menu Help in the schematic editor.
    PLECS License Manager dialog
  2. Click Get HostID....
    HostID dialog
  3. Click Copy to clipboard to copy the text to your system clipboard so that you can conventiently paste it e.g. into an email or a web form.
