INFO: Examining the dwOemId Value


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Win32 Application Programming Interface (API), used with:
    • Microsoft Windows NT Server versions 3.5, 3.51, 4.0
    • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation versions 3.5, 3.51, 4.0
    • Microsoft Windows 95


The Win32 Application Programming Interface (API) GetSystemInfo() fills in the members of a SYSTEM_INFO structure. The dwOemId member represents a computer identifier that is specific to a particular OEM (original equipment manufacturer). Windows NT versions 3.1, 3.51 and Windows 95 always place a zero in the dwOemId member. In later releases, this behavior will change to include different OEM IDs.

Additional query words: 3.10 3.50 4.00
