System Information

Hi Folks,

I'm running Windows XP here, and there's a nifty utility called System Information - which happens to conveniently display lots of information about the devices and software versions on my PC.

What I would like to know is if there is a way to get this data via VB?

Many thanks,


Richard.

u can use the system information control
it will be under componenets as
Microsoft SysInfo Control 6.0
if this doesnot satisfy your requirement. you have to go for the API Calls for complete details about the system
   Hope the component control will solve your problem..
all the best
