Quick Tip: What is MY_UNIQUE_32_HEX_NUM?

When working with Adobe Merlose licensing code I hit MY_UNIQUE_32_HEX_NUM variable containing some generated string (XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX). As there was nothing within my emails from melrose that would correspond to that string, investigation got started. Soon after I found Merlose FAQ saying that MY_UNIQUE_32_HEX_NUM is a GUID that you choose and is immutable for the lifetime of the application, followed by Q&A combo:

Q: Do I need to randomly generate the application UID that is passed to the* checkLicense() *call or will Adobe give one to me?
A: You need to generate the UID. We recommend you use a GUID generator tool like: http://www.guidgenerator.com/online-guid-generator.aspx. Generate your own unique number and plug it into your code…

Mistery solved!
