  2. Oscar,

    Without the user telling you, you probably are not going to be able to
    do this. Your best bet would be to have an ActiveX control installed on the
    page (and not a .NET control that is embedded, because the rights by default
    wouldn't allow you to access the information needed) which would then do the
    detection for you. For something like this, you are better off using an
    unmanaged piece of code (only because hosting Windows Forms controls as
    ActiveX controls is not really supported).

    Hope this helps.
