The platform SDK has a Win32_BIOS class that has a whole lot of characteristics about the BIOS looks like it was made to work for this application but I can't find any sample code or figure out how to use the class. Does anyone know of where I can find a great example of the use of this class?
....another method to get the publish date of the bios is via a direct read of memory (which I don't know how to do). Using the debug utility, and from some readings, the bios publish date is located at ffff:0005h and goes on for 8 bytes.
I'd prefer to figure out how to use the Win32_BIOS class which is part of the WMI set of classes, but the documentation is rather minimal......
Does anyone have any ideas or sources that will obtain the basic BIOS information?
