Get Friendly Name form EVERY connected Device
Posted By joe on 14 Sep 2013
hi together
I'm trying to get the Friendly Device Names, which you can find under Start => "Printer & Devices" => Devices (Model Name)

I tried with Win32_PnPEntity and Win32_USBControllerDevice and Win32_USBHub.

I get every possible Information, like VIDs etc. but i don't get the friendly Name. Even in the Depent Property there seems not to be the Name i'm looking for.

I know that i can search the registry for it and compare against the VID, but there should be a direct way, or not? => It seems, that even the Registry doesn't hold this Names.

Thx a lot

Hm, it seems, that a lot of USB-Devices doesnt have a Friendly Name. So I'm searching for the  Model-Name (like in the Picture). Sadly, I can't figure it out how.
