How do you retreive information about your computer (processor speed, processor type, memory banks total, # of memory cards and type installed, sound card installed, video card installed, etc.) with code.  I would like to be able to find out a good amount about my computer, but not go crazy.  You probably use API calls, but I'm not sure.  Basically, I am trying to make a networked information tool so I can find out what's installed on which computer, without having to go to each one to find out.

A good example to start with..


Here, I'll show you how to build an interesting ActiveX control from the ground up. This control will pretty much tell you everything about your system and related information.

So much for experts exchange.

The first and only question I asked, you couldn't answer. The solution links are broken.

Good thing I didn't pay to get nothing.

Thanks anyway, I'll go looking elsewhere.....
