Hello there
Is there a way to programmatically get the serial number of the
processor(s), the mainboard, and the RAM modules?

Processor Serial Number noticifcation must be switched on in BIOS
Mainboard information will be available without any modification
RAM [DDR or otherwise] is not identified with any manufacturer's ID or
serial number

Get Belarc Adviser and run it on your PC. A free utility that will give you
this and much more valuable information.

Why waste time to write your own utility when one this good is free.

well actually, I need to use these info in a software I am working on
so I can't use a ready made application, I need it programmatically.

Well, then you should learn how to write a program or
license the recommended programs for your needs and have
them [Bel Arc or Lavaly's] write the code for you.

It isn't all in a programming group,
microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware is where I saw it.

Firstly, the information you would get would be shaky, in fact you'd be
lucky to get anything. Secondly it would only work if you were running
as an Admin of the remote box.

Here's a snippet I used in one of my projects for some WMI stuff
Imports System.IO

'**************

Dim procStr As String, hrdDrvStr As String

Dim moReturn As Management.ManagementObjectCollection

Dim moSearch As Management.ManagementObjectSearcher

Dim mo As Management.ManagementObject

moSearch = New Management.ManagementObjectSearcher("Select * from
Win32_Processor")

moReturn = moSearch.Get

For Each mo In moReturn

procStr = Trim(mo("ProcessorID"))

Next

moSearch = New Management.ManagementObjectSearcher("Select * from
Win32_PhysicalMedia")

moReturn = moSearch.Get

For Each mo In moReturn

hrddrvStr = Trim(mo("SerialNumber"))

Next

There's a start for you...........
