setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
REM This txt file lists the computers to pull data from

FOR /F %%i IN (%file%) DO (

System Information for Windows (SIW) is a single Executable.  Used in conjunction with PSEXEC, you can have it run a 2-4 minute system report which includes just about all the information you can dream up about a PC.  I'm currently writing an Access Database to import that data and subsequently flag systems that don't don't meet requirements or even troubleshoot systems that appear to have issues.
