hi, unfortunately i need a bit of help with a config for a program that an ex-employee of ours wrote. Basically, the program verifies itself on a website and verifys one specific type of bluetooth hardware is connected. we have recently changed hardware suppliers and need to take the requirement tying us to the old hardware manufacturer out. any help on this simple issue would be great. I've posted the code for the config file below

Edited 7 Years Ago by Nick Evan: Wrap your code in [code].. code here .. [/code] tags

isn't there any documentation for this configuration file ?

Unless we have to reverse engineer that program in source code
level ( if you have the source code).

The best thing is that email the ex-employee unless you have to
fully reverse engineer this.
