The Net is full of examples for Dot Net env. but not plain Win32 (or MFC).
I have to get hold og the CPU ID working on a Win32 MFC DLL

Check out this example - it is using inline asm tho, but maybe you can use that.

No. Thanks.

I am interested in the actual 16 char. code embedded in the CPU, not if it's Genuine Intel

There's a pretty good C++ example on the MSDN site

The MSDN example at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa390423(VS.85).aspx works well, simply replace the query in the example with:

"SELECT ProcessorId FROM Win32_Processor"

...and update the output value in the example:

hr = pclsObj->Get(L"ProcessorId", 0, &vtProp, 0, 0);
