Hi

I get the following errors in the code below. What references/imports do I have to make

  Error      81      Type 'ManagementObjectCollection' is not defined.
Error      82      Type 'ManagementObject' is not defined.
Error      80      Type 'ManagementClass' is not defined.


  Friend Function GetAllMACAddresses() As String

        Dim mc As ManagementClass = New ManagementClass("Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration")
        Dim moc As ManagementObjectCollection = mc.GetInstances()
        Dim MACAddress As String = String.Empty
        For Each mo As ManagementObject In moc
            If CBool(mo("IPEnabled")) Then MACAddress &= mo("MacAddress").ToString() & ";"
            mo.Dispose()
        Next
        Return MACAddress.Trim.Trim(";").Trim
    End Function

What kaufmed implies is that you need to first define a reference to the System.Management.dll in through the Project...Add Reference menu, so that Visual Studio recognize that class.

Then, you should add an Imports System.Management command at the top of the file so that the compiler recognizes that namespace.

You must do that whenever you use classes out of the "ordinary" classes that are used more regularly.
