> 1. Is there any good way to obtain a unique device identification. Mobile
Depends on the device. I've done things like getting the serial number from
on-board flash before, but this is going to be very hardware-specific and
probably require input from the OEM. Have you asked them if there's any
unique ID their devices supply?
Does it have to be INI files? The SDF has a complete SettingsFile set of
classes for reading/writing settings to an XML-based file that I often use
for writabel app settings.
Yes, if it's shared, you can enter the path to it (e.g.
\\remotepc\\sharename\folder\file.txt) to it and it should provide an
authentication dialog. You can call the NTML authentication APIs via
P/Invoke if you want to avoid the dialog. I blogged the procedure in C++ -
you'd have to convert to managed code.
