What JVCL release do You use?
Is it 1.32 or 2.00alpha?

Read 2 reg-files i attached.
They are dumps of registry under Win200 and Win98.

So - If You really need this - plz, make a component, which will return the values You need - and donate it to JVCL.

Those fn's GetBiosName, etc - they are written for pure DOS and Win16.

They always lead to exception under Win98 or Win2000, D5 or D6, In IDE or Standalone. The only matter of fact - do You see it or not.

I vote these dirty functions to be removed from JCL.

I agree that the implementation is not good.
