    Read CMOS under windows?


    -Is it there any way to read(dump) the CMOS to a file using C++ under windows operating system?

    -Is it mainboard dependent?

    -Can you, Please, tell me where can i find a reference to CMOS structure for Most popular Mainboard providers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Here is a link to some dated information on reading/writing CMOS. Pay particular attention to the HalGetBusData function for CMOS access. You'll have to do this work on the kernel level as in device driver.
