Set SysInfo to Variable

#1 Post by booga73 » 05 Jan 2014 14:02

How do you set this to a variable instead of piping to text file?

systeminfo | findstr /B /C:"OS Name" /C:"OS Version"

The output of a command line can be processed in a FOR /F loop.
In your case probably this way:

Code: Select all

for /f "tokens=1,2* delims=: " %%i in (
  'systeminfo ^|  findstr /B /C:"OS Name" /C:"OS Version"'
) do set "%%i_%%j=%%k"
echo %OS_Name%
echo %OS_Version%

I can't test it since my German output of systeminfo is different.

Hi aGerman,

thank you,

I'll test it out and let you know; you got me in the right track and will post.

Absolutely; the code does exactly what I was requesting; thank you aGerman!

update; for some reason initial inquiry to my question, setting up a command to display on console, I didn't want to pipe to text or log file.
also, I had trouble trying to conceptualize how I wanted to state in batch code what I needed. thanks!

v/r Booga73

the following command, modified from your initial input aGerman:

Code: Select all

for /f "tokens=*" %a in ('systeminfo ^| findstr /B /C:"OS Name" /C:"OS Version" /C:"System Type" /C:"System Boot Time" /C:"Original Install Date" /C:"Total Physical Memory" /C:"Available Physical Memory" /C:"BIOS Version"') do @echo %a


displays the following:

OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise
OS Version: 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
Original Install Date: 11/19/2012, 12:00:39 PM
System Boot Time: 1/2/2014, 3:19:48 PM
System Type: X86-based PC
BIOS Version: Dell Inc. A06, 7/11/2011
Total Physical Memory: 3,317 MB
Available Physical Memory: 1,461 MB



Yes, you did help me; I'm simply had trouble trying to conceptialize how I needed to setup the command.


Modifying the script even more:

Code: Select all


for /f "tokens=3-6" %a in ('systeminfo ^| findstr /B /C:"OS Name" /C:"OS Version" /C:"System Type" /C:"System Boot Time" /C:"Original Install Date" /C:"Total Physical Memory" /C:"Available Physical Memory" /C:"BIOS Version"') do @echo %a %b %c %d



. . . output. . . .

Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise
6.1.7601 Service Pack 1
Date: 11/19/2012, 12:00:39 PM
Time: 1/2/2014, 3:19:48 PM
X86-based PC
Dell Inc. A06, 7/11/2011

Memory: 1,468 MB

Perhaps is this what you want?

Code: Select all

@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

rem Assemble the list of desired systeminfo values
:nextValue
   set "name=%~1"
   set "value[%name: =_%]=X"
   shift
if "%~1" neq "" goto nextValue

rem Load the list of values from systeminfo command
for /F "tokens=1* delims=:" %%a in ('systeminfo') do (
   set "name=%%a"
   if defined value[!name: =_!] set "value[!name: =_!]=%%b"
)

rem Show all names with values
set value[

rem Show only the values
for /F "tokens=2 delims==" %%a in ('set value[') do echo %%a

For example:

Code: Select all

test.bat "OS Name" "OS Version"

Aacini,

I copied / pasted your script into test.bat and ran it. I got the following output:

C:\Users\booga73\Documents\MyScripts>test.bat "OS Name" "OS Version"


value[OS_Name]=X
value[OS_Version]=X
X
X

aGerman's code is the only one that works for my OS I get:

Code: Select all

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center
6.3.9600 N/A Build 9600

With booga's modified code:

Code: Select all

"OS Name was unexpected at this time"

With Aacini's code:

Code: Select all

"value[ =_]X
_]"

This is strange. It seems that "if defined" does not correctly check for the existence of a variable when the name is assembled via Delayed Expansion and there are NOT quotes! Anyway, there is a work around; try this version:

Code: Select all

@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

rem Assemble the list of desired systeminfo values
:nextValue
   set "name=%~1"
   set "value[%name: =_%]=X"
   shift
if "%~1" neq "" goto nextValue

rem Load the list of values from systeminfo command
for /F "tokens=1* delims=:" %%a in ('systeminfo') do (
   set "name=%%a"
   for /F %%v in ("!name: =_!") do if "!value[%%v]!" neq "" set "value[%%v]=%%b"
)

rem Show all names with values
set value[

rem Show only the values
for /F "tokens=2 delims==" %%a in ('set value[') do echo %%a


@Dos_Probie: You must put in the parameters the names of the desired values enclosed in quotes (see the example). This is more practical than include they in the code. aGerman's code does not work if the desired value have three words instead of two...

With wmic you also can get your Proc info..

Code: Select all

for /f "tokens=2 delims==" %%I in (
  'wmic cpu where "manufacturer!=\"Microsoft\" and name is not null" get name /format:list 2^>NUL'
) do echo %%I
