thanks for the computer name, now, what about the company name, I looked
around the machine name and environment namespace, but found nothing. I'm
still searching, but if someone has the answer, I'd love to have it... ;)

thanks

If you mean the company particular copy of Windows is registered to, it can
be found in registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\RegisteredOrganization

Of course, that would only work if this information is set correctly. PC
can't figure out which company it belongs to on its own.

Best regards,

Ilya

ok, excellent, I'll take this one for now. It should be ok, for the moment.
(I guess it's the one I have to use anyways.)

Thanks a lot.

You can also use Active Directory information of the login of that machine.
Or your own login.

System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry can be used for this.
