Hi!

I suppose you know how to write a database, right?

Here's some code for you: (You'lll have to do jigsaw puzzle with all the code and put them together yourself)

Download...

Description: This module allows you to find a file or files on your computer without using a single API. It looks for files type that you specific and return their name, path, size and date. It is good for program such as Anti-Virus or any program that requires access to every file in the system. This code also allows you to enter Wild Card Characters "*" so you can search for files of the same type or file(s) that you don't know how to spell.

Description: Update now shows proper infos to P4 too. Shows detailed information about your CPU. Recognizes Intel, AMD, Cyrix, Rise, IDT chips. Gives names, speed, l1 and l2 cache information. Also shows the features of your CPU. To make it possible to read the CPUID i wrote a little DLL in assembler that comes with the source code. Sorry but there are nearly no remarks in the sourcecode. But it should be easy to read. If you find that the programm makes a mistake identifying your CPU, please choose CPUID dump form the Tools Menu and send it to thomas.schaefer@inkosoft.com Enjoy

That's it!

Here's another one:

*RAM
Description: This code will quickly tell you a lot of your system information like computer name, IP address, OS, Service Pack, Processor Vendor, Processor Type, Processor Speed (Raw and Normal), RAM (Total and Available). The processor speed and RAM are on a timer and are updated every second. I am using a getcpu.dll that I downloaded of PSC created by Catalin Petolea. I am trying to get the source of the dll, but have not got it yet. The IP address module was also downloaded from PSC. Thanks for leting me use your code. Please vote if you like it and leave some feedback. We may use this program at work, so if there is any other information you think should be on it, please leave feedback or email me at rossim@jitzs.com.
 
That's it!
