BozzoCage, posting URLs constructed by using a session ID is useless, somehow ..

Hi, mon2000.

#Questions
1. What exactly do you mean by "product number"?
2. Do you mean the manufacturer?  model number?

#Try This
If you wanted the hard drive's serial number, then the code below should work.

<----------- Sample Code Begins ----------->
' (general-declarations)
Private Declare Function GetVolumeInformation _
    Lib "kernel32" _
    Alias "GetVolumeInformationA" _
    (ByVal lpRootPathName As String, _
    ByVal lpVolumeNameBuffer As String, _
    ByVal nVolumeNameSize As Long, _
    lpVolumeSerialNumber As Long, _
    lpMaximumComponentLength As Long, _
    lpFileSystemFlags As Long, _
    ByVal lpFileSystemNameBuffer As String, _
    ByVal nFileSystemNameSize As Long) As Long


Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim VolName As String * 255
Dim VolFS As String * 255
Dim Serial As Long
GetVolumeInformation "c:\", VolName, 255, Serial, 0, 0, VolFS, 255

VolName = Left$(VolName, InStr(VolName, Chr(0)) - 1)
VolFS = Left$(VolFS, InStr(VolFS, Chr(0)) - 1)

Debug.Print "Volume Number:", VolName
Debug.Print "File System:", VolFS
Debug.Print "Serial Number:", Hex(Serial)

End Sub
<----------- Sample Code Ends ----------->

BozzoCage's links might not be the best representation, but are still working. They point to nice little programs that will do the job.

Hmm, missed that as I looked to the comment from ahoffmann telling they didn't work...

I guess the moderator will take this in account when finalizing the Q.
I'll change my recommandation to:

Is there a small function in Turbo C which can do the
job? The question is simple but not everybody has
technical expertise to write it.  (Atleast not me but will appreciate one.)

Hi pan_kaj,

This is not the place to post a Q :-)
When the answer to your Q isn't found between the comments here I would post my own Q e.g. in the C topic area...
