Get pc serial

Hi, Experts, I got a code from google that would be able to get serial number of the HD, and this work only on Windows Xp. I wish to revise the codeHDSLN-Demo.zip that would work also on  Windows 7 and 10. Is there anyone who can help me please.

It works on my Windows 10 system, but you have to answer the User Account Control message that comes up when you start VB6. If this is bypassed in any way a blank serial number is returned.

Try this at a command line and see if this is the serial number you want (there are a number of "serial numbers" often referenced with regards to disk drives on Windows).

Try this

Sub GetSerialNumber()
    Dim oFSO   As Object
    Dim drive  As Object

    Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set drive = oFSO.GetDrive("C:\")
    MsgBox drive.SerialNumber

    Set oFSO = Nothing
    Set drive = Nothing
    'release memory

End Sub

Just to clarify, Roy's example will fetch the same serial number that the command line DIR shows, just in decimal rather than hex format.  That's not the same as the hardware serial number, but it really depends on what you are looking for.  They are different but valid depending on that...
