Local System Information GatheringLocked
In performing physical inventory’s it’s always nice to use a software solution to obtain a complete list of Hardware and Software information. Though a software package can be costly. In an effort to avoid these costs, I have turned to VB to obtain the specific desktop information I need both Hardware and Software. I have been able to successfully put together a VB script to prompt for some customer information, automattically grab both specific hardware and software information and load all of it into a comma delimited file that I could then load into a SQL database.
My Problem is that the VB code that I found and modified for this use is limited to only capture software installed through MSI. I am looking to get a complete lising of software names and version numbers only.
Any Suggestions on how I can attain this information without purchasing any additional software? The information is obviously stored on the desktop, its just a matter of getting it out using some form of coding (VB in this case).
