  • Do you really mean "history", as in what has happened in the past?  No component of the system keeps track of that information.  You can get that information from the registry for the devices that are active right now, but not in the past.

  • "Friendly Name" and "Serial Number" are already in your list.  "Device Class ID" can only be fetched when the device is attached.  None of the other information you ask for is available.  The system simply does not track that kind of info, because it's not useful.

  • Tim Sir actually I'm trying to create a USB History Software such as "usbdeview".

    Because if this software can read this type of data from system than there must be some fields that may store this informations
