Hi,

I'm Riaz.  I would like to know how to programatically (in VB) find out all the computers active on the network currently - like windows explorer shows them when you click on Network Neighbourhood.

thanx in advance

NOTE: You may not see the Active DS Type Library in the list of available References. To add the Library to the list:

Click Browse.

 -Go to the Windows\System folder or WinNT\System32 folder.
 -Select the file ActiveDS.tlb.
 -From now on, the Active DS Type Library is among the list of available References.


Dim dc As IADsDomain
Dim n As IADsComputer
 
 Set dc = GetObject("WinNT://DomainName")
 dc.Filter = Array("Computer")
 For Each n In dc
    Debug.Print n.Name
 
 Next
 Set dc = Nothing
 Set n = Nothing

Cheer's

vbhelper, you are not new to EE so you should be fully aware of the guidelines on comments vs answers. Whilst your "answer" does indeed contribute to this thread it cannot be construed as the 100% definitive solution. Please restrain from posting "answers" in this manner or your account will be referred to customer services for possible penalty. I would ask you to withdraw your answer but as this is currently not available I would hope that your answer is rejected and considered fairly with the posts from hongjun. IMO the MVPS link provides a fast and efficient solution to this without having to install additional components such as the ADSI stuff. You are fully aware that the questioner may accept any comment as an answer at any time and as such your posting of an answer is in fact irrelevant. All that it achieves is to move the question into the locked area thus reducing the chance of other experts to contribute.

Hi
Add listbox to your form:

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Const ssfNETWORK = &H12
  Dim oShell, fld, fldItm
  Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
  Set fld = oShell.NameSpace(ssfNETWORK)
  For Each fldItm In fld.Items
     List1.AddItem fldItm.Name
  Next
  Set fldItm = Nothing
  Set fld = Nothing
  Set oShell = Nothing
End Sub
