"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This WMIC call gets the hardware serial number:

wmic csproduct get vendor,name,identifyingnumber

The output looks like this:

IdentifyingNumber     Name                              Vendor
ABC12345XY               HP EliteBook 8460w     Hewlett-Packard

Here's another WMIC call that does it:

wmic bios get serialnumber

The output looks like this:

Don't know — I'm not familiar with SIW or Topala, but it's certainly possible that it's making WMIC calls under the covers.
