What is the 'instance ID'?

since v1.1 CTP1

The instance ID is used to match different information e.g. error reports and update checks. Without that ID it would not be possible to get an error profile accross Windows Home Server Console crashes, server restarts or different Router Control versions.

The ID is a random value written into the Windows Registry and has NO association to you or your Windows Home Server.


since v1.2 CTP1

The instance ID can be copied by selecting the text using the mouse cursor and pressing Ctrl+C or clicking the right mouse button and selecting Copy.
