Hello guys,

today I created a small program which detects most information of your CPU.

The program is called 'DetectCPU' and it does what it says.

This is what the app looked like:



This is How DetectCPU looks in v2!









The program is licensed under the GPL3.0.

This program is written in Visual Basic(.Net) 2012 for Windows Desktop.


Check the source code out, over at my GitHub: https://github.com/Beatsleigher/DetectCPU
Feel free to add your own commits, pull your own copies and distribute!
I shall now start work on another project, relating to Windows (Yes, also open source!)

Download DetectCPU from Sourceforge!: https://sourceforge.net/projects/det...?source=navbar

Changelog:


Code:

Added status strip:
 - Live CPU usage
 - Live RAM usage
 
 Version 1.0.0.1
 Removed performanceCounters (Too buggy when using on different system w/ different system languages.
 Set the framework down to .Net 3.5
 01:11 26.05.2013

nice concept...but VB? :P
I would advice use C# or C++ and then try to make it platform independent so we can build something like CPU-Z for all operating systems.

For platform independent UI we could use QT or wxWidgets.(if c++ would be the choise)

From the look of it, this uses WMI to talk to Windows to collect its data. This isn't a very portable solution at all, so don't get your hopes up about this working on other platforms, VB or not.

I hope this helps someone in their developing.

Does your app work on mobile devices too? I ask this because the screenshot you provided relates to a Win32 machine.

As far as I'm aware, it should.

Yes, VB.
Comparing C# with VB is stupid, as they are both almost impossible to differentiate, the only real difference between the two, is that C# uses the C-Syntax.
I am already working on a mono-compatible solution, but as it uses WMI (Which is the simplest way to get as low-level as this) it is quite the task, but it's not impossible. I'll add it to my GitHub today.

That shouldn't be a problem. We can use wrapper-classes/methods(if u aren't doing it already) and then use other ways to read thoses information on unix systems.

Came here via the XDA portal!

Looks like a potentially useful program, however I would recommend removing all the "CPU"s from the list headers. All the information is about the CPU by design, and every list item starts with "CPU" so it looks a bit odd and is probably unnecessary as-is...

Just a suggestion
