    How to Generate a Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) in Windows


    GUID (or UUID) is an acronym for 'Globally Unique Identifier' (or 'Universally Unique Identifier'). The term GUID is generally used by developers working with Microsoft technologies, while UUID is used everywhere else.

    GUIDs identify objects such as interfaces, manager entry-point vectors (EPVs), and class objects. A GUID is a 128-bit value consisting of one group of 8 hexadecimal digits, followed by three groups of 4 hexadecimal digits each, followed by one group of 12 hexadecimal digits. The following example GUID shows the groupings of hexadecimal digits in a GUID: 6B29FC40-CA47-1067-B31D-00DD010662DA

    It's nearly impossible for the numbers generated for the GUID to have two numbers repeated making them unique.

    For more information about GUID, see:
    This tutorial will show you how to quickly generate a new Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) in Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

  3. Universal Unique Identifier (uuid) type is not supported

    Hi Jimish,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are getting a message “Universal Unique Identifier (uuid) type is not supported” on the pc. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:


    • What is the make and model of the pc?

    • Have you installed all pending updates on the pc?

    • Have you logged in to the pc as admin?

    • Is the computer connected to a domain network?

    Winlogon communicates with the Group Policy service (GPSVC) through an RPC call upon system startup for computer policy and with user logon for user policy. System Center Configuration Manager installs a Client-Side Extension (CSE) in the Windows image,
    which is detected by the Group Policy service on first start. The Group policy service then isolates itself into a separate SVCHOST process (it is originally running in a shared process with other services). As RPC communications have already been established
    before the service isolation, Winlogon can no longer contact the Group Policy service, and this results in the error message that is described in the Symptoms section.

    On later restarts, GPSVC is appearing in a separate process from the beginning of the operating system session, and therefore the RPC runtime has no problem finding the correct server process instance.

    Suggest you to refer to the reply provided by “Azaruddin Syed” from this thread to check if that helps.
