I`m need to create an aplication in visual basic 6.0, that could monitor USB devices a projector a smart board, APC,Printer all on the USB Port, the big problem is to detect via USB the name and manufacter of the device. Also I need to establish a comunication with these hardware like asking the projector how many hours has been on line and the life status of the lamp bolt.
In the printer I have to ask similar questions like how much ink is left on the cartridge or time left to be with out ink.
I really try several windows dll like msinfo32 or kernel32 but the only think a receive is a serial number of the device nothing more.
This is really urgent for my enterprise
This will meant a lot for me and my boss
