I ran the v8_lmtools.exe utility and got the following
ethernet address:


I plan to use the program to convert my microwave board

In order for us to generate license strings you need to provide us your machine's ID. This is best done by downloading the utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address that it displays. See below:
