The Protection PLUS 4 compatible "User Code 2" or "Computer ID" generated by this method are NOT designed to match Computer ID values generated by Protection PLUS 4, and are also NOT designed to work with the Protection PLUS 4 Computer ID thresholds. This method only provides a simple way to generate a Protection PLUS 4 compatible Computer ID to use with activation, and is NOT designed for any purpose other than providing a reasonable, compatible means of ensuring a Protection PLUS 4 trigger code is only processed for the appropriate system.
