Getting System/OS information in Coldfusion

This Article describe how to get the follwoing system information in Coldfusion using .Net OS Information

  • Hard Disk Information
  • IP and Computer Name
  • Mac Address
  • Computer information

Steps to follow

Create a Class Library in .Net and compile and get the dll file generated from .Net

Call the dll from coldfusion and access the methods from dll

.Net Code Snippets

// Add the Columns headers to the table
foreach (ManagementObject mo in queryCollection1)
// Adding the rwos to the table
DataRow drdummy= DT.NewRow();
drdummy["DeviceID"] = mo["DeviceID"].ToString();

return DT;
// Method to get the OS Information
public DataTable GetOsinfo()
ManagementObjectSearcher query2 = new ManagementObjectSearcher("SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem");
ManagementObjectCollection queryCollection2 = query2.Get();

// Add the Columns headers to the table

// Method to get the Computer Information
public DataTable GetCSinfo()
ManagementObjectSearcher query3 = new ManagementObjectSearcher("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem");
ManagementObjectCollection queryCollection3 = query3.Get();
DataTable CSDT = new DataTable();

foreach (ManagementObject mo in queryCollection3)

public String GetIPAndCompName()
String S22;
String ComputerName;
String IP;
ComputerName = Dns.GetHostName();
IPHostEntry ipEntry = Dns.GetHostEntry(ComputerName);

return S22;
/// Returns MAC Address from first Network Card in Computer
/// [string] MAC Address
public string GetMACAddress()
ManagementClass mc = new ManagementClass("Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration");

string MACAddress = String.Empty;
foreach (ManagementObject mo in moc)
if (MACAddress == String.Empty) // only return MAC Address from first card
if ((bool)mo["IPEnabled"] == true) MACAddress = mo["MacAddress"].ToString();
MACAddress = MACAddress.Replace(":", "");
return MACAddress;

/// Return processorId from first CPU in machine
/// [string] ProcessorId
public string GetCPUId()
string cpuInfo = String.Empty;
string temp = String.Empty;
ManagementClass mc = new ManagementClass("Win32_Processor");
ManagementObjectCollection moc = mc.GetInstances();
foreach (ManagementObject mo in moc)
if (cpuInfo == String.Empty)
{// only return cpuInfo from first CPU
cpuInfo = mo.Properties["ProcessorId"].Value.ToString();
return cpuInfo;


CFM Code

type = "dotnet"
name = "MDBDTable"
class = "OSinformation"
assembly ="d:/Vishnu/OSinformation.dll">

<cfset dummy = MDBDTable.GetCSinfo()>
<cfdump var="#dummy#"><br>

<cfset dummy = MDBDTable.GetDriveInfo()>
<cfdump var="#dummy#"><br>

<cfset dummy = MDBDTable.GetOsinfo()>
<cfdump var="#dummy#"><br>

<cfset dummy = MDBDTable.GetIPAndCompName()>
<cfset IP = listgetat(dummy,1)>
<cfset domain = listgetat(dummy,2)>
IP is #IP# <br>
Domain is #domain#<br>

<cfset dummy = MDBDTable.GetMACAddress()>
Macaddress is : #dummy#

  1. Do u mean call sharepoint from .coldfusion?
    No UI component can be called using coldfusion and .Net integration

    possible i guess
