Changing the computer name under Windows XP...
Posted on 2002-06-17
I'm not sure if this even counts as a VB question or not, but what the hoo..
I'm trying to change the computer name from within a simple VB app I've written. The original plan was to create a .REG registry file to change the ComputerName key, but under Xp, changing that key has no effect.
I'm an old time .batch file geek, and I don't know two halves about VB.. if I could use a batch file to achieve my goal just as easily, I'd be doing that instead of using VB... but a text interface just isn't the same thing as a simple VB form. :) So please gear your answer with my incompitence in mind.
If this is not something that can easily be done through VB, I'll call this question a wash and put it under the Win XP section, but I expect that someone somewhere has tried to do this under VB...
Thank you for your help.
