Issue Details

I want to get my computer information, Windows OS version, bitness, name and so on using LabVIEW VIs. Is there any way to get computer information? If so, which function should I use?


You can check your computer information from LabVIEW using the System Exec VI. System is located in Functions Palette>>Connectivity>>Libraries&Executables>>System Using the System, you can execute Windows-based applications or Command-line applications.

To determine computer information from the command line, input the value systeminfo in the command line input.
