With Visual Basic I remember being able to interrogate the Device and return the Hard Disk Serial Number and other information about the PC. I was wondering if anyone kows how to do this with Classic ASP?

I am planning on installing a Classic ASP app on multiple LapTops and need to stealth check the LapTops ID.

Any pointers or alternatives would be appreciated!

Thanks Kev.

Is there some other way of uniquely identifying a PC/LapTop? I am installing an ASP App on various Machine and need to be able to interrogate something that is unique.

If you open a command prompt and DIR you get the Drive Serial - does anyone know how to DIR the results to a file (in DOS you can DIR > file.txt and the open the file.txt file). I could hten query the file for the serial number.

the best (without a 3rd party ActiveX Object) that you could do is query the server for the info, not the client machine.  Even in an internal environment

You may want to revert back to VB in order to do this...

just to toss the idea out...

why not have a database on the server that stores the unique machine info. (including the IP address), then simply query that info based on the users IP address?

The server solution isn't an option as teh LapTops will all be disconnected during use (client visits) but the FSO solution is perfect - have some points!
