    Getting Video Card info without WMI or DirectX

    Is there a way to get video card information without querying DirectX or WMI? I am writing an OpenGL application but I don't see anything that OpenGL offers in this respect.

    Is there some reason why you cant use DirectX?
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
