on windows... i dunno. you can always find some freeware GUI application such as this, but unfortunately has no command line interface that i'm aware of.
f you can find something similar that allows command line interface, you can do a system() command to query it. which still won't help you develop a commercial application, but might do in a pinch for a personal project or internally distributed app.
if you need something more professional, you'll have to roll your own API.
do ya get the feeling that your posts are worthless? apparently, everyone else does.
No, his help is highly valuable.
The Win32 group is fantastic, a goldmine for Windows developers, with incredible undocumented tips (that
you can't even find in Msdn), from the greatest Win32 gurus in the world (MS internal or not) !
