How can SilkTest retrieve the system NIC value?

One way of achieving this is to use smHostInfo.exe.

Below is a script that writes the required information regarding your network card to a text file.

[ ]
[-] window DialogBox Run
[ ] tag "Run"
[-] ComboBox Open
[ ] tag "Open:"
[-] window DialogBox CWINNTSystem32CmdExe
[-] multitag "C:\WINNT\System32\cmd.exe"
[ ] "CMD"
[-] testcase test() appstate none
[-] recording
[ ] //This script launches the command prompt window
[ ] //then it executes smHostInfo and saves the information
[ ] //in smHostInfo.txt
[ ] string sPath="c:\program files\segue\silkmeter\bin"
[ ] Taskbar.Start.Click ()
[ ] Taskbar.TypeKeys("R")
[ ] Run.SetActive ()
[ ] Run.Open.SetText ("cmd")
[ ] Run.Open.TypeKeys ("")
[ ] CWINNTSystem32CmdExe.SetActive ()
[ ] CWINNTSystem32CmdExe.TypeKeys("cd {sPath ")
[ ] CWINNTSystem32CmdExe.TypeKeys("smHostInfoy")
