Well...i think it'd be kinda nice if my log file (sent to me via e-mail by users whose computer can't run my app so I can inspect the problem) would tell me just a tad bit more than what DX8 enumeration gives me...

like
RAM
video memory
Real OS name (I know there's an api that does something like this, but it gives me Windows_NT while DxDiag gives me Windows XP blah blah, etc.)
Processor (pentium [I, II, III, IIII], celeron, etc.)
credit card number (j/k)

Anybody?

I couldn't find any DxDiag object...but I did find a bunch of APIs (good old All-API network! Thanks KPD-Team!) that do the trick!

(no credit card no. tho )

Yeah that means I am very active here...

Sure. It used to say "Codename: HEX" & VbCrLf & VBCrLf & "Coming soon...". But since then I have suspended project HEX because it were coming out too boring. Then I started another one... I decided to call it wormhole as a codename but a lot of people keeped telling me this name was idiot , so I renamed it Project Lupa.

Also I made a little joke with the "Coming soon" part because it probably will come out a really big amount of time after now. (check here... http://www.vbgamer.com/msgboard/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=165& by the way can you send me a link of Vampire's engine stored somewhere that is not a romenian domain because I can't access it...)


p.s. I hope you have understood the VbCrLf thing, I did it to put the entire sig in just one line but still keep the string like the original.



(...VbCrLf? String? ...I must be coding too much...)

Whatever. Who knows...

EACam, Don't know if your still after this - you can get this information using API calls.

Download and take a look at the following project.
http://www.freevbcode.com/source/Diag.zip

Hope it helps...
