Finding the Intergraph Host ID string for license generation

In order to generate licenses for Intergraph GeoMedia products, a host id may be required as input to the license  generation process. Whenever GeoMedia could not obtain a valid license, it will pop up the screen shown below.

Previously, the Host ID field contains only a 12 characters hexadecimal string e.g. 08002711d817, which is the actual host id string that can be copied and use to generate the software license. But recently, Intergraph changed the string to include additional hexadecimal characters but still labelled the entire string as the Host ID, which is confusing to users.

To get around this confusion, simply copy the first 12 characters from the entire string to use as the Host ID string, when you are prompted for it during the license generation process, as shown in the screen shots below.
