Monitor's actual serial number?

That's amazing that you get the monitor's actually serial number. I'm curious about your method. Are you using DDC (Display Data Channel)?

The Inventory Analyzer gets this information from the EDID structure. Of course, not every monitor speaks EDID, and not every monitor has a unique serial number. The majority of "budget" monitors don't have a serial number.

Fantastic. I have yet to find commercial audit software capable of getting this info. Thanks!

Doesn't our software fall under the "commercial" category?

Hehe. I meant I have yet to find any commercial software other than yours. :) AIDA32 does, but it doesn't do what Asset Nav. does and isn't commercial.
