[How to] generate a Microsoft System Information report (MSINFO32)


(!) Sometimes in order to investigate the issue (crashes/ lockups), Artec Support Team requires some information about the OS and hardware


Microsoft System Information Tool

The Microsoft System Information tool (MSINFO32) displays an extensive summary of your system hardware, installed software and device drivers.  When a hardware or software issue requires investigation by the NVIDIA software team, the first step is to reproduce a customer's issue in our labs so that the problem can be root caused. 

The Microsoft System Information tool can generate a report that will assist us to setup a system that closely matches the configuration of the customer reporting this problem.  While it does not share personal information such as passwords, image files, browsing history or other sensitive information, it does list which applications are installed on your PC, the name of your PC and other basic system specs.
