What are the differences between Pro and Standard editions?

Also, why does NIN get BIOS and Motherboard info for some machines but not others?

The differences between the Pro and Standard editions are described at

The BIOS and Motherboard information may not be obtained for a few reasons. The most common are:

1. There is no WMI installed.

Here is an explanation from the online help:

NOTE: Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) must be installed on the client machines in order to collect advanced information about the hardware configuration. Otherwise, only basic-level configuration information will be reported. WMI comes pre-installed by default on Windows ME, 2000 and XP machines. In order to enable WMI on Windows 95 / 98 / NT 4.0 machines, an optional Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) component must be installed.
WMI services for Windows 95 / 98 /NT 4.0 machines can be downloaded at

2. The system BIOS is not DMI 2.0 compliant

3. The machine is custom built or there is simply no such information stored in the system BIOS
