Hi, I use Zenworks to package/deploy our applications. I was wondering if anyone has had any success with packaging applications that require activation via a code generated and based on that particular PC's hardware?

Example, I'm currently packaging Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 with a single user license. Although we only intend to give it to one person, if she moves PC's or gets a new PC we want to be able to deploy working Dragon 10 back to her PC quickly. This means not having to run activation again if possible.

Just wondering if anyone has any tips or tricks that they use to get around such activations?

I don't think you can avoid this.

Had a similar issue lately and had to contact the vendor and have a license regenerated with a different IP address. No other way around it in our case. [&:]

If you reinstall the computer then no problem.
If you replace the hardware... Sometimes, you will be able to still register but there is a counter on the company side. May be you can ask the company to remove the maximum activation or get a higher number of activation.

In some situations we had to sent an official letter sign by the director and the companies accepted.
In other situations we had to buy another version of the software with no activation. That situation happened sometimes but you should call your sellers and speak with him. I am sure he will help you solving that problem.
