“Computer Description” in a metro app RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to retrieve “Computer Description” from a metro app. We used to do that by looking up registry value “srvcomment” from "SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\LanmanServer\\Parameters" in Win 32.

    Can you please point me to the corresponding WinRT API?

  • I'm not aware of any way to get at that from a Metro style app. Could you elaborate on how this impacts your application features? The feedback tool (mentioned in the forum quickstart post) has a field for any API's you feel are missing and should be added.
