I am currently working on a VB application that will monitor the status of the underlying hardware i.e. battery status, fan status and CPU temperature. I’m using the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) with some small success however with the hardware/software configuration I have (see below) I appear to be missing various bits of information that would be really useful. I know the hardware is there, but WMI is not reporting any valid values i.e. CPU temperature
The first part of the question is as follows; is there any other way to retrieve those value other than the WMI i.e. an API call I’m not aware of. The second part of the question is that failing to find a solution to the first part of the question is there any other way in VB6 to read values directly if you know the address to look – I’m resisting the urge to use the words PEEK and POKE but I guess you can see where I’m coming from.
Thanks in advance for help received.
