System Properties Information

By kennyfortuin ·
Where in the registry does it contain the System Properties information. I believe it gets the CPU information from [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0], but where does it get memory size and which memory slots are used, and hardrive make and size.

I am not 100% sure of this but I believe it gets that info from WMI calls.
WMI can query this information from the bios.
This is what makes obtaining this information from scripts so easy.
Check out this link for more info.

Two thumbs up. Very interesting article. Not only can WMI calls obtain hardware values, but software information as well. Many thanks Dan, much appreciated.
