"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What do you mean?

Shall the computer name be displayed in a messagebox after login?

... I'd suggest the following vbscript:

Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WScript.Echo "You Computer Name = " & WshNetwork.ComputerName

Save it to a file named "MyComputerName.vbs" ... right-click the file after saving and click on "Open" ... your computer name will be displayed ... to automate this you'd have to bind it to any logon script your users have in your network!

If you are using .Net

You can use the Namespace System.Environment

In that Namespcace you can retreive the total informations about your system and your ip and you dns details everything

for example

It will Show an System Name in your desktop

Udayakumar Ethirajulu.
At the Command Line or in a batch file:

Echo %ComputerName%
If you're running a computer network with a domain, you can create login scripts for all the users

in one such script, you read (by using any of the methods above) the computer name - and create a background image with that text smack in the middle of it.

then simply set the desktop background with it (via code)

is that what you need?
