    Question Getting system information

    Hi,

    I'm trying to find out how to get information from sysinfo or wininfo32.exe using C, after searching for a long while I only seem to find downloadable products.

    I'm trying to create a little C program that gets the hardware information off of the computer that it's on (using windows os) and displays it.

    Any help would be really really appreciated.

    thanks.

    I don't know how to do that, but I'm sure someone who can answer is going to ask if you're targeting Windows only, or if you want it for Linux too.
