Out looking for ET... in IL, USA
Can anyone help me to read my CPU temp in to a VB program? I have shareware program that do it but i want my own for free. is the an API or something to read the sensors? Anyone have a clue?
I think you'd probably need to do something like grab the dlls that mbm uses to read the sensors, and then use those. Windows by itself is ignorant of the sensors.
take a look at this thread..........kinda went no where, but maybe


i used api and mbm5's dll it has a function getTempSens1 and getTempSens2 , but i keep getting some realy wierd #'s......i think that function is calling others and performing some kind of math function to arive at the temp........wish i new hex and assembler to find out what's going on inside that dll.....good luck let me know if you make any headway
