I have been asked by my university's IT division to write a program that displays specific information about the computer that the program is running on, such as the OS version, IP address, domain name, chipset, any device drivers that are installed, and any software that is installed. I'm allowed to use whatever language I want, but since I only know Java and VB.Net, I would like to use one of them. I've been doing Google searches for two weeks trying to find any information on a built-in class that would do this, in either language, but thus far, I've been unable to find anything that fits what I'm looking for. What I'm hoping for from this is for someone to tell me about a class that displays this kind of information, or failing that, how I would go about building my own. Be as general as you feel you need to be; this is a class assignment, and I'm hoping to learn something from this. Thank you for your time.
