Hi,

I want to build a small app(2.0) and read the C (or local drive), program files folder, for each computer on the network and list all folders inside Program Files on each computer(only 1 level deep) and output it to a txt file or db.

Anyone ever done something like this, or pehaps knows a good wsite with this stuff on?

thanks.
