I do't know if this is available on platforms other than Windows; look for:

LabVIEW 8.2\resource\Framework\Providers\Builds\Installer\CDK_Utility_GenerateGUID.vi

Thanks, the Builds VI calls this VI:


which I suspect to be available on other platforms as well.

The http://www.vartortech.com/visecurity/cryptg.html' target="_blank">CryptoG Toolkit contains amongst many encryption and hash algorithmes a Random Number Generator and based on that a VI to create GUIDs.

All these functions are fully native G code and tehrefore completely plattform independant. It's cost is nothing that should prevent you using it and I can really recommend it.

Was looking for this today myself. This is what I came up with:


Added benefit is if you supply a variant, the VI will make sure that the returned GUID has not already been defined as an attribute key. It of course generates an entirely random number which doesn't conform to any specification that places significance on certain bits etc...but it suits my needs just fine (creating positively unique keys).
