    I found a link with C# code that can do exactly this:

    If you're looking for C/C++, not sure. Maybe something in it will still be helpful.

    It seems, from the article, you'll need to use WMI for this. Maybe that's at least a pointer in the right general direction.

    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.
