I would like to know if there is a way to get the device name through the MSDK v 5.4. Currently we use Mobile Control Center to manage three different hand-held models, work about pro, g2 and g3, and Omnii XP10. Every device have running the Device Agent Manager.
Our development team is building a lightweight agent, using .Net and MSDK v5.4 altogether. We need to constantly extract wireless statistics, battery status, etc . Those data will be synchronized to a remote database through web services.
My concern is related with the device name because there is no problem to retrieve the above data, but we don't find any related to the device name.
I hope the Psion' Community could help us!.

Any device-specific information (such as the device name) is saved in the PDB.INI file of the terminal. By default, this file can be found on the stable storage folder of the terminal. On Windows CE temrinals, this is typically the '\Flash Disk\' folder, in Windows Mobile devices you may find the file in the '\MCC\' folder.
Once you have located the PDB.INI file, the Device Name is saved in the 'DeviceName' namespace of the [Device] section.
The MSDK should not be required to open the file.

Thank you very much for your kindly support. In our case the PDB.ini file is located in \Psion Teklogix\.
