11.13. Collect and Display Information on the System and the Access Installation

11.13.1. Problem

Your application really needs to know some information about the computer on which it's running. In addition, you'd like to add some professional polish and an About... box that shows information about the computer, the resources, and the user. Access doesn't provide any way to find this information. How can you gather it?

11.13.2. Solution

You can use the Windows API to retrieve information about the system on which your program is running. By using these various functions as the control sources for unbound controls, you can present a selection of system information to your user.
