MSINFO32 (Windows 2000 or MS Office)

Windows NT diagnostics

Reports: Memory use, Drivers, DLL versions, Audio,Video and Print settings.




/c List the version, date, and build of each DLL in

a user-specified folder and determine whether it's

loaded in memory.

/msinfo_file Open the specified .nfo or .cab file

/nfo or /s Output an .nfo file with the specified file name

/report Output a text file

/computer Get details from a remote computer

/categories Display or output the specified categories

/category Set focus to a specific category at startup

The GUI interface will open if no options are specified.

for example:

msinfo32 /c [My DLLís] c:\mydir

(Be sure to include the square brackets.)

Note that early versions of MSinfo do not support all the switches listed above.

MSinfo is typically started from Help,About rather than the command line, if not in the system path, MS info can usually be found in:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSInfo

Note that generation of the text file can take some time, depending on the complexity of the system.

If you have problems getting MSInfo to run, check permissions on the following key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSInfo\

Under the W2K command-line you can run WINMSD /? rather than Msinfo32 /?
