WinNT/2K Hardware Profile Identification

By CarlT ·
I have a need to determine which hardware profile was chosen by the user of a Windows 2000/NT workstation after the GUI comes up.

I have checked the registry and could not find anything. I need to set an environment variable (e.g. SysType=) based on the hardware profile chosen.

Look on the Hardware tab of the System Properties (from Control Panel), click the Hardware Profiles button and you should see "Current" in parenthesis beside the proper profile.

This solution does not provide me with the ability to set an environment variable, as it is just viewing the GUI.

I too had also found the (Current) designation. But this does not help me.
