[SOLVED] rundll32 and My Computer->Properties on Win7

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi All

I have been looking at the .cpl files and hooks into rundll32 for various things I want to directly trigger instead of going through the Control Panel, etc.

Where I am stumped currently is finding a way to bring up the dialog you get when you right click on 'Computer' and go to properties (in Win7). The path at the top of the window is "Control Panel\System and Security\System" and where you see things like the PC Manufacturer, Performance Index, and Support information.

If anyone knows a way to directly bring this window up, I would appreciate the tip!

Thanks

As far as I know, this works on all modern versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7).

Hi Deathbringer and thanks for your reply.

Yea, I'm familiar with sysdm.cpl, but that just brings up the System properties and not the same dialogue as Computer->Properties on Win7.

This seems to work:

Run('explorer.exe shell:::{BB06C0E4-D293-4f75-8A90-CB05B6477EEE}')

Here is a good page with CLSIDs for Windows 7

@Deathbringer

No problem at all. I still appreciate you responding and trying to help.

@Varian

Awesome! You nailed it. I hadn't come across a list like this before. It's very useful and I'm sure I'll be pulling other items from it as well. I was searching for cpl and rundll32 before. Thanks again.

I will mark this topic as SOLVED.
