Windows 8 System Info

I talked about uniquely identifying a Windows 8 device before. Last week I stumbled over this post by Rene Schulte.  In this post he creates the SystemInformation class. This class gathers some useful information about the current system and dumps it in a string:

using System;
using System.Globalization;
using System.IO;
using System.Net.NetworkInformation;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Windows.ApplicationModel;
using Windows.ApplicationModel.Store;
using Windows.Devices.Enumeration;
using Windows.Devices.Input;
using Windows.Graphics.Display;
using Windows.Networking.Connectivity;
using Windows.Security.ExchangeActiveSyncProvisioning;
using Windows.Storage;
using Windows.System.Profile;
using Windows.System.UserProfile;
using Windows.UI.Xaml;

namespace Schulte.Xaml.Windows
{
public class SystemInformation
{
public static async Task<string> Dump(bool shouldDumpCompleteDeviceInfos = false)
{
var builder = new StringBuilder();
var packageId = Package.Current.Id;
var clientDeviceInformation = new EasClientDeviceInformation();

// Get hardware Id
var token = HardwareIdentification.GetPackageSpecificToken(null);
var stream = token.Id.AsStream();
string hardwareId;
using (var reader = new BinaryReader(stream))
{
var bytes = reader.ReadBytes((int)stream.Length);
hardwareId = BitConverter.ToString(bytes);
}

Thanks a lot for the post. This has helped me!

System ID: clientDeviceInformation.Id
Will this be a unique id? Is this id likely to change.
