Has someone ever asked you the question "Is my computer 32-bit or 64- bit?" WMIC is the command that can retrieve this information about a Windows Operating System and almost all of the components installed on the computer. WMIC is the abbreviation for Windows Management Instrumentation Command-Line that has been used for over a decade in the Windows OS.
The book I Wish I Knew How To...Program Windows WMIC With Xojo is able to query hundreds of parameters on the computer and this code can be implemented into your program. This is a reference book that shows the many possible options of WMIC and retrieves data seamlessly to your program.
The most difficult part of working with WMIC is to provide the correct search parameters, which this book covers in all of these chapters.
There are 60 chapters which contains over 550 pages and more than 60 example programs that can retrieved hundreds of specifications. Many screen shots have been added to show the results of the code with an index to help find topics quickly. Each chapter has a working version of the WMIC command that can be used.
A few of the many examples include drivers, network protocols, Network Interface Card (NIC), motherboard data and specifications, boot configurations, the BIOS, and much more.
