Try using ProcessExplorer[^] to figure out the exact command line parameters passed to the executable file that the batch file spawns. You might as well want to open and see the code within the batch file.
Thanks for all to who responded. To answer your question, I am looking to retrieve any and all information if possible from any hardware device. This is a way for me to learn how to tap into the fingerprint of hardware devices such as (NIC)'s.
All for learning experience. I am taking a Networking class and want to make a simple program which can retrieve information from the (NIC) or entire network.
Yeah, so the error states why the function failed.
I'll favour the other poster here. Like he asked: is it the same computer or a different one? If it's a different one, is there an audio device and the board has a speaker? (Do you see the volume control icon on the tray area?)
It just sounded like something I'd do. I have a machine here that doesn't have external speakers, and the motherboard doesnt have one either, so it can't give the happy little beep when it boots. (Or any other time.)
