    Question Get Hardware information in c++

    I'm trying to get specific hardware information like CPU name, motherboard maker and model, ram info, and so on

    I'm trying to make this so i can add this information to a database

    ive been looking through google and i found a few things but when i try to compile some sample code it pops up with intrin.h: no such file or directory found.

    I'm extremely new to c++, is dev-c++ a good program, are there better ones and what should i be looking for to get this type of information

    Then you might want to take a look at the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=VS.85%29.aspx and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=VS.85%29.aspx
