Hi andomar,

n = REQUEST ("Configuration_number", "", stConfigurationNumber)
Returns the configuration number (as string expression) assigned to the current ARCHICAD license in case of soft license or hardware key. Returns empty string in case of Edu, Trial or Demo licenses. Each configuration number is unique and does not change.

To access the hardware ID you would need to write an add-on.

Look under the request options in the gdl pdf.
I believe you can get it from the program info request for the serial number

Thanks for your help.
That way the GDL gets the information from archicad, but it's not what I'm looking for.
I want it to report the hardware id (pc), which is found in the device specifications.

Or any way to get the host name, but direct into the gdl object? (for example in power shell of windows, this: C:\>hostname )

Like this example:
