make os image unique
« on: July 27, 2016, 11:27:48 AM »
i have created an image for the media players i will be distributing... the issue i seem to have run into is that the server still sees each one of them as the same player even after uninstalling the signage player and reinstalling it before going online to hit the server... there must be a residual reg key that uninstall does not remove... i have used regedit and deleted every reg entry that i felt comfortable doing with "signage" in it... if anyone knows the specific entry that makes each unit unique it would be most appreciated... it is a win 7 image

i am pretty sure i found the answer... i found 2 folders in c:\users\user\appdata\roaming left over from signage player uninstall named sinageplayer and sinageplayer.xxxxx... i did not touch the reg this time but deleted those 2 folders... reinstalled sinage player... when it hit the server i was required to enter a new device name and which campaign to run... if anyone wants to verify that, i believe this thread may be closed...
