To gather system information of a computer running windows use the command ‘SystemInfo’. The command gathers following information…
1. Operating system information
2. Processor information
3. Input local information
4. Installed hotfix information
5. Network card information
A good way to use this command is to redirect output to a file, for e.g. SystemInfo > D:\SystemInfo.txt. Another option is to run it straight from "Start->Run->cmd /c systeminfo > D:\nibu.txt"
Good for creating repro’s, VM’s and to know what hotfixes are installed on the machine.
To get help on the command use: SystemInfo /?
