Guid.NewGuid() is always returning all zeroes

I am using VS2004 and .Net 2.0. Every time Guid.NewGuid() is called,
the returned guid is all zeroes: {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}

In looking at the MSDN documentation on NewGuid(), it states:

"There is a very low probability that the value of the new Guid is all
zeroes or equal to any other Guid."

It seems I am in that "very low probability" group. Does anyone know
why?

Can you post your code?

I am using the Guid.Empty value ("00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000") to represent a special meaning. The problem is that I don't know if there is a chance that a command like "Guid.NewGuid()"would generate a Guid.Empty value could this be possible or is the "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000" Guid reserved or something like that? Thank you.

I want to create a unique id for each of a set of objects. These ids may be generated on multiple machines simultaneously and must all be different to each other. There are an undefined number of machines involved (1 to dozens) and an indeterminate number of objects (many to very many on each machine). My best guess for a solution would be to use a GUID (all the machines have an ethernet connection so a GUID generated on any of them...

Is there a built in function for creating a Guid in VB .Net ? I know about the CoCreateGuid API call, but I though that maybe it's been built in to .Net ? I've found the GUID class and tried Dim oGuid as New Guid Dim sGuid = oGuid.NewGuid() But it gives me a blank GUID (string of zeros)
