I'm writing a Windows Forms application in VB.Net 2010. The application's purpose is to recreate the Device Manager in VB.Net. The idea here is to capture the information provided by Device Manager and store it in a database. In turn this information could be used as a configuration management tool.
My device tree is coming along nicely, with one minor exception. There are hidden devices that Device Manager does not display by default. Show Hidden Devices causes Device Manager to display these devices. My Device Manager displays them by default. I want to duplicate the Device Manager behavior of being able to hide and display these devices in my appilcation. I have had some success with this task in that I am able to hide the Plug and Play devices that are marked as hidden by windows by use of the "Don't Display In DM" flag. There is the small issue of the Non Plug and Play Device Class. My question is this... Is there a similar flag for Non Plug and Play devices? I have found a reference to the PNP_DEVICE_STATE and IRP_MN_QUERY_PNP_DEVICE_STATE IRP. It contains a flag
PNP_DEVICE_DONT_DISPLAY_IN_UI. My problem is that I cannot find any guidance as to the structure of this API declare and the coding needed to use it. I'm not even sure if this API will be helpful in accomplishing my task. I want to hide the Non Plug and Play devices and device class in my tree. Can someone please assist me with the locating an API that will accomplish this and the proper coding of the API in VB?
I am using Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate and Running Windows 7 Ultimate with all Service Packs and updates applied.

Once again, I come on my knees to ask for your guidance :P Well, actually I was hoping to see if anyone could someone make up a code similar to this idea xP. [code] Anyone knows how to do this? Basically just list every device connected. Doesn't have to be in the specific paths, just the names of every device
I have a little chunk of code that open the device manager by using the command line. I want it to open a specific tree eg: Monitors .Is there a way to pass a parameter to the device manager to open this specific tree or item?
Public Class Form1 Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click Shell("mmc devmgmt.msc") End Sub End Class
I have a Windows form.in windows form have a combo box that give me a list of available port serial with it code (Dim ports As String() =SerialPort.GetPortNames())for example( Com1,Com8,Com15,...).but I want to give me fullname of serial port in device manager for example in dvice manager is these (Comunication Port(COM1) - Printer Port(LPT1) And USB Serial Port(COM8)).how to Get it?
A Problem in accessing a device from VB Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because there is a duplicate device already running in the system. (Code 42) This error is because i am using 2 devices of the same company which has the mass usb storage on it and when i install one of the device the other hides. So one is detected the Other is not. It also give a error called designed dragnonacally something...
i am trying to enumerate all IPs on my local network, but i am not having any luck. The only thing i have came up with so far is a really tedius "get my own ip and scan the subnet with pings" which surely isn't the best way? I am really only trying to get the ip of a tivo box, and i can determine it's a tivo by mac address or name. My router lists the "computer name" of the tivos as a long string of numbers with the prefix "tivo".What about broadcasting a ping packet? I could also attempt to connect with telnet to port 31339 on every one of them.
I'm writing a media management tool and want to add support for MTP based devices.I've been reading through the SDK docs and with the help of some C# examples have managed to make a start on getting some VB code working.
I've come across a few anomolies that I hope someone can help me with!In the examples IPortableDeviceManager.GetDevice appears in C# to receive a string array. But in VB.NET it appears to only receive a string. I have a similar issue with IPortableDeviceManager.GetDeviceFriendlyName which according to the C# samples appears to receive a char array, whereas in VB.NET it is accepting a UShort.
I am having trouble ejecting the USB device. It gives an error saying " The device cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device later" To duplicate the problem, I created a very simple application with two forms. Form 1 has a button to the Form 2.
All I was able to figure out is a decleration for GetRawInputDeviceList which atm isn't working for me, I tried passing lots of different values in to get something to work, i've got outputs of -1, 0, and 1 from it but I use a mouse/keyboard & also have a controller hooked up...I also am not retrieving any information on what type of device(s) that might be hooked up/detected.The deceleration types & the like may be off but I translated from C++ code.
Declare Function GetRawInputDeviceList Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal pRawInputDeviceList As IntPtr, ByRef puiNumDevices As Int32, ByVal cbSize As Int32) As Int32
I am having problem with my FYP that my application is based on the detection of Insertion and Removal of a device. I am aware that this would happen using Win32_VolumeChangeEvent class or WMI. (Please notify me if I am wrong). Kindly solve this problem and send the code for Console Application in VB.NET. Please do not send code in any script language or C#. Also to get the device information.
Been a long time since my last thread but here we go.I'm using VS.NET 2010 Prof Beta at the moment and I'm trying to list all Nic Cards and their settings into a text box. I succeeded with a script from the web (which had an error in the first place) and some adjustments to it.
It lists all hidden devices too (as to be shown in Device manager: Show hidden devices) I worked my way around it and let it jump to next if it doesn't have a IP address, but I find this a bit clumsy and want to really skip them if they are hidden and not just the way I did this now.
Plus it still does show the same NiC (different name, same MAC#) in the list because it has an IP, but in Device manager this one is hidden.[code...]
I have 2 devices An old IPAQ Pocket PC that runs Windows Mobile 4.2 A Mini-ITX PC Running XP
My IPAQ connects to my network via wireless. My Mini-ITX PC is going to have an IR-Blaster setup which is going to control all my devices. What I would like to do is create a small controller program that runs on my IPAQ and a back end program on my Mini-ITX PC, so that when a particular control is selected on my IPAQ it sends the signal to my program on the Mini-ITX PC which inturns sends the correct IR signal to the device in question.
If I have two apps which I have written with vb 2008 for windows 6 device lets say app1 and app2. App1 is running but then needs to start app2 - then app2 needs to shut down app1 and do some updating of app1 then app2 needs to restart app1 and app2 then needs to be shutdown. I am aware of the systemdiagnostics.process classes. One thing I don't understand is how to shutdown app1 from app2 how would get that processid of app1 due to the fact that you havn't access to getproccessbyname methods.
I was trying to play a bit with bluetooth devices but i can't find that much info about it. I'd like to build some sort of program that allowed me to send messages into bluetooth enabled cellphones. The idea was to send messages with tasks/events inside the building. This software would be part of other software such as ERPs or agendas.
This is my code for loading list of plugged in USB devices:
Private Sub Button5_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button5.Click ListBox4.Items.Clear() For Each Drive As IO.DriveInfo In IO.DriveInfo.GetDrives
I would like when a button (lets say buttontest) is pressed it will show all files of a CD (only MP3) into ListBox5, then when buttontest2 is pressed the files in ListBox 6 will be copied from the CD to the selected USB device?
I am currently porting (well really totally re-writing) a project to run on WM6 devices. I need to initiate a GPRS data connection (or any internet data connection really, shouldn't matter if its GSM or CDMA) before I can get the data I need (actually sync. a database over the cell network - Sybase via Mobilink) because right now its basically saying I have no network connection when I make the call to sync the db.
If I open Internet Explorer on the device, it initiates the data connection, and I can then go back into my program and get the data no problem. This isn't an acceptable solution however.
What I need is an application that can have several audio files open up, which in turn can be routed to any of the audio output devices (e.g. external audio card channels). See the attached image for an illustration.
I want to detect when my touchpad is clicked! I normally use a usb mouse, so I don't use the touchpad for anything. Instead I'd like to make it possible to perform an action in .NET, when the touchpad is clicked. This way I can use it as a shortcut: One tap and something cool happens.
Is this possible, and if yes, any clue how? I'd prefer if it could be working in VB.NET or C#. My theory is that I'd have to make a mousehook, which then somehow determines which device the click is coming from. If the click is determined to be from the touchpad, then cancel the click and doWhatever().
