    • How to indicate pending Windows updates Hi, is there a way to have an indicator for pending windows updates (Win10)? I'd like to have an indicator (bar, count, whatever) shown on Desktop Info area if there are pending windows updates for the current PC. Unfortunately running a Powershell command or script (for now) is not an option, but WMI query, *.exe or calling SCCM is.

    • WMI query with multiple sets causes stack overflow Hello again Glenn! I've managed to work myself into a hole again. I'm attempting to use WMI queries to gather information and store it in variables via the set: functionality. It seems that specifying a single variable via the WMI %name% return style doesn't set the value, and instead only puts the literal string %WhateverProperty% into the variable. The big one though I ran into when attempting to collect multiple pieces of information in a single query. Specifying more than one variable in t...

    • ERROR WMI [error] : Invalid variant type conversion I am getting the following information in the desktop info error log: ERROR WMI [error] : Invalid variant type conversion The offending query seems to be this: WMI=active:1,interval:0,color:FFFFFF,text:Model:,namespace:root\cimv2,query:Win32_ComputerSystem,display:%model%,text-offset:43 I think the issue is that WMI is returning a string and delphi is trying to convert it to a string a second time. At least that's what I can gather from google. I'm not sure how I avoid the unnecessary convers...

    • Password Expiration Anyone know why this doesn't work or could provide an alternative? I searched the forums and saw the vbs, but we would prefer not to use that if possible. WMI=active:1,namespace:root\CIMV2,query:Win32_NetworkLoginProfile,display:%PasswordExpires%

    • Not displaying data I have downloaded Desktop Info 2.61. It seems to be displaying a lot less information that what I would expect. For example I run the DesktopInfo-Technician.bat file and I get a Title line. a Date/Time line, a Battery Line, then a Cyan border coloured empty box then 2 orange border empty boxes. Running the program with the desktopinfo-sample.ini I get five lines of data, date/Time, Host Name, User, CPU Type & Display Controller, using the Advanced ini file I get the same. The system is ru...

    • Parsing WMI Queries Greetings, It has been years since I looked for updates to this fine product and boy was I surprised on how much activity there has been! I'm still trying to understand the new syntax for the .ini files. One thing that has changed is the OS Version display. It now uses a WMI call. Is there a way to parse the %caption% response so I can pull just the bits I want? For example namespace:root\cimv2,query:Win32_OperatingSystem,display:%caption% will show "Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Standard"...

    • WMI query Win32_PingStatus Hey Glenn, First, a big thanks for this awesome tool. Im trying to ping an ip adress and then get true or false as output. I guess Win32_PingStatus is the way to go for this. My line so far: WMI=active:1,interval:0,color:ccffcc,text:VPN,namespace:root\cimv2,query:Win32_PingStatus Where " & _"Address = 'ip goes here', And that's about it. I've tried different queryes with no luck. And im not shure how to display the output. Property:ProtocolAddressResolved? Sys info: Windows 10 Enterpri...
