Computer Plucker is a fork and a "restoration" of Computer stats utility by @Rogue5099 (link)
You can obtain various data about local machine, as from the screenshot.
But my goal is not (only) to provide another PC stats tool, but to develop a very basic remote inventory tool, like (a small subset of) the abandoned Spiceworks or the Microsoft SCCM.
So this script can be deployed on a machine as a standalone executable (yes you need only ONE file to distribute) , and launching the .EXE it installs itself to a folder (es. c:\autoit\computerplucker)
In tools menù you can set two tasks and not only
one for creating every week a file.ini with all the data of the machine. another one for creating every week a file.ini with all the data of the machine PLUS uploading a CRYPTED record of the machine in a free mysql DB online For my needs, I am deploying the .exe and schedule the second task, uploading data one time a week.
In tools menù you will find also commands for:
manual creating the .ini data file to upload the data in crypted records to upload the data in clear text records (for testing..) total uninstall of ComputerPlucker, with a simple security code. many other tasks in not so logical order.. next version I have to tidy the menù... So my plan is to deploy this on my machines, and have the data in a online DB, this DB will be for me only a "cache" for data records to be downloaded (and deleted) by another script.
As today the account of this TEST DB is embedded in code, using the "File to Base64 String' Code Generator" by @UEZ (used also for embedding icons and XML task definitions)
Local $mysqlhost = "sql11.freemysqlhosting.net"
Local $mysqlport = "3306"
Local $mysqldb = "sql11403701"
Local $mysqluser = "sql11403701"
Local $mysqlpsw = "QtL7T9U5GV"
The DB is one table of 30 mysql tinytext fields... very simple indeed...
You can try to upload data to this DB and access (phpmyadmin or a random mysql browser app) to see the results.
Or you can use my ComputerPluckerDBbrowser (see at the end of this post) a script to collect and manage the data.
PRIVACY warning: you are uploading data of your PC account and PC data, test as your risk (or test in another account...)
I also created a small post in a blog for not so geek friends, and I have a more advanced version of the data browser, you can have more info lookin' here. 😀
Attached you will find the code, and all the necessary includes are at this >link<.

I didn't know where to put this; my apologies if this is the wrong location.
When you plug a Samsung mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.) into the USB of a Windows PC, you can right-click the device in My Computer and select Properties. Here, it will show you the correct serial number of the device. Clearly Windows doesn't use adb to get the SN so I'm stuck at how to get the SN without adb and where the device doesn't have a drive letter assigned to it.
When I last picked this up, I tried seemingly everything I could from wmi(?) and winmgmts(?) but either it's hidden cloak-and-dagger style or I can't see the forest for the trees...
Does anyone know what API Windows uses when getting the serial number of a device Windows calls a Portable Media Player?
here's another UDF for the serial port. It is very similar to CommAPI using kernel32.dll, but all code is packed into a single file without any dependencies, not even using WinAPI.au3. It differs from existing UDF that it doesn't allow a timeout when reading, instead it always returns immediately, either with the requested amount ob bytes read or with a failure status. And of course there is a function provided to query the amount of available bytes in the receive buffer. The reason behind this design decision: You can do 1000 other things in the main loop while checking from time to time if enough data bytes arrived. There's no point to block the program waiting for the serial port.
It is currently a work-in-progress, as I didn't test all functions yet. The code was developed and tested on Windows 7 64 bit. The ComUDF-Tests.au3 shows some tests and basic usage of the UDF. Maybe there's no reason to use this UDF, given the existence of the others UDFs, but I did it to get to know DllCall better - I use structs no only to pass but also to get data back (I don't use the array returned by DllCall to read that data, unless required). You're welcome to test it on older and newer Windows versions.
Here's a list of the implemented functions:
; _ComListPorts ; _ComOpenPort ; _ComSetTimeouts ; _ComClosePort ; ; _ComSetBreak ; _ComClearBreak ; _ComGetInputcount ; _ComGetOutputcount ; _ComClearOutputBuffer ; _ComClearInputBuffer ; ; _ComSendByte ; _ComReadByte ; _ComSendBinary ; _ComReadBinary ; ; _ComSendChar ; _ComReadChar ; _ComSendCharArray ; _ComReadCharArray ; _ComSendString ; _ComReadString ; ; __ComClearCommError ; __PurgeComm Maze
I am trying to open a dll using DLLOpen, however everytime i try to do so the function fails and returns -1 result.
I have the dll in the same folder as the auto it script.
Local $hDLL = DllOpen("C:\Users\310255155\Downloads\COMMGvv2\commg.dll") DllCall($hDLL, "int", "MessageBox", "hwnd", 0, "str", "Some text", "str", "Some title", "int", 0) DllClose($hDLL) MsgBox(0,'result',$hDLL)
So I'm trying to send a string of data to Arduino using CommMG UDF. It seems that Arduino is not receiving it. I used Device Monitoring Studio and it shows that the data is sent fine and looks exactly the same as if I sent it from Arduino Serial Monitor. Is CommMG compatible with USB?
Global $CMPort = 9 Global $CmBoBaud = 9600 Global $sportSetError = '' Global $CmboDataBits = 8 Global $CmBoParity = "none" Global $CmBoStop = 1 Global $setflow = 2 _CommSetPort($CMPort, $sportSetError, $CmBoBaud, $CmboDataBits, $CmBoParity, $CmBoStop, $setflow) If @error Then MsgBox(16,"Error!","Can't connect to Arduino on port - "&$CMPort) Exit EndIf _CommSetRTS(0) _CommSetDTR(0) _CommSendString("x" & 128 & "y" & 256 & "e", 1)
