Retrive the Vendor Infromation of the Processor

Using the Registry and Registry Key classes in Microsoft.Win32, we can easily access the registry.
The following is a sample code that reads a key and displays the value:

using System;
using Microsoft.Win32;

class regTest
public static void Main(String[] args)
RegistryKey regKey;
Object value;
regKey = Registry.LocalMachine;
regKey = regKey.OpenSubKey("HARDWARE\\DESCRIPTION\\System\\CentralProcessor\\0");
value = regKey.GetValue("VendorIdentifier");
Console.WriteLine("The central processor of this machine is: {0}.", value);
