Regarding : Inquiring system information in Windows 8

    Question

  • Hi,

       I am working on a custom mobile platform. What would be the supported API to Get the processor information. I am using GetNativeSystemInfo() but it returns that the processor is not recognized.

  • Hello,

    Would you please provide us more information about this issue?
    What CPU did you used? How did you get the processor information in codes.

    Best regards,
    Jesse

  • In addition to the CPU details Jesse asked (what is the processor, what was the result), see if using the sample referred to in the following thread using WinRT APIs gets you any better description:

  • Hi, 

    The processor I am using is across various platforms like NVIDIA tegra , SnapDragon etc. All of them return a default 0xff value for GetNativeSystemInfo().
