Hi there,

I'm writing a little program that can detect remotely a mac address, the nic, the video card and the service tag (dell computer). I'm stuck with the service tag and the mac address.
Anyone there have an idea.

Thanks.

For the MAC address have a look here

Be sure to import the System.Management and System.Management.Instrumentation namespaces

Dim theManagementScope as new ManagementScope("\\" & ComputerName & "\root\cimv2")
Dim theQueryString as new string = "SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = 1"
 
Dim theObjectQuery as new ObjectQuery(theQueryString)
 
Dim theSearcher as new ManagementObjectSearcher(theManagementScope, theObjectQuery)
Dim theResultsCollection as ManagementObjectCollection = theSearcher.Get()
 
for each currentResult as ManagementObject in theResultsCollection
   MessageBox.Show(currentResult("MacAddress").ToString())
next
