System Information - cannot be collect



  • 1. OT: Form inside a panel
    Hi Herfried, || A really cool feature, but the border of the form will never get highlighted No highlight, eh? Well that's no good - can't use it without a highlight. ;-) Actually I'm thinking of borderless windows anyway because they will be bordered by a custom splitter. :-)) <rant> OE and MS Server - I get five minutes per ten hours to download - outside that I get the dreaded strike-through. I can see your reply but not mine, nor the OQ. Grrr!! I wish MS would at least post a message explaining what they are doing and why these problems exist. That's just common courtesy, in my book. </rant> What's this Hamster that you have? How does it get around the server's reluctance to deliver, and its contrariness - "you can have 5am to 10am but no more"; "No, I've changed my mind, you can have 11pm the night before until 2am"; "No, now you can have the lastest 36 messages but nothing earlier"!!! And why do you need to cross a Hamster with a gnu? Regards, Fergus

  • 3. Problem in adding circular references
    Hi, It is known that .NET does not allow us to add circular references. Is there a way to workaround this problem by late-binding the objects at run time? Will this create any other problems? One solution to the problem is to re-architect the solution. But, I dont want to do this as there are many modules in the project which are already developed and nearing the release. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Gos

System Information - cannot be collect

After installing my VB.NET application, System Information no longer works.
It comes up with an error that it "cannot collect information".  Has anyone
else experienced this?  If so, what might be the cause/fix?

Hi David,

Never saw that.  Is it possible that the security permissions on that pc
need to be reset?

Yes, this definitely happens as a result of installing my VB.NET app.
SysInfo works fine, I install my app, then SysInfo no longer works.  Then,
even if I uninstall my app, SysInfo still does not work.

2.Use VBA to collect information from Excel cells to av word documen

I have reference Office 11.0 Object lib. as a default. To get all the Excel 
objects i activate the Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object library.

Then i can brows it all, by then i create a VBA code then VBA can't use the 
Excel Objects as  :
Dim Text as string 

I have tried a line i use in VB6

Dim Text as string 
set XLS = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")


This gives med tha same as
Text =cstr(Exel.Workbooks("BookName.xls").Worksheets("SheetName").Cells(1,1))

I can brows the object model, but i can't use it.

Is there an other code that enebles the Excel object model in WORD.

Best regards


3.Collect Logical Drive Information

I am trying to collect logical drive information for every server in
our environment and write the information to a semicolon delimited
text file. For each logical drive I am recording the DeviceID, Disk
Size, Free Space, and then calculating the consumed space and writing
each value to the text file. The goal is to be able to import the data
into Excel so all the columns line up correctly. The problem I am
having is that each server could have a different number of logical
drives. I am recording other information (IP Address) after the
logical drive information and I want that information to consistenly
start in the same column.

I don't have any problem getting the script to run correctly and
collect the information, just formatting it into useable data in
Excel. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


4.How to collect disk space information

Hello folks. I am trying to write a script where i can put a list of
server in a text file and get information on their disk utilization.

5.collect contact information

I am not a programmer, only network and systems admin who knows enough
to be dangerous.

I would like to collect information such as addresses and phone numbers
from end users and save the results to a database.  I will ultimately
import that data into Active Directory.

I am using a Kix Script that contains some VB and uses WMI to collect
hardware information and save it to a table in an SQL database.  I
would like to collect information such as addresses and phone numbers
from end users and save that to the SQL database as well.

Can someone help me with the following.  Here is my logic:
1.  Detect the username at login and match it to the username field in
SQL database.

2.  If address and phone number are blank than pop up a form for them
to fill out.  Clicking OK will save the fields to the database.  Also
register the date the form was filled out.

3.  If address and phone number are NOT blank.  Verify if it is older
than 90 days.  If it's older, pop up the form.  if Not, continue
through the script.
