How can SilkTest return the system Bios Version?

By utilising the systems registry we can return the current systems Bios Version. The following code will query the system registry and return the requested data.

[ ] //Borland Code
[ ] use "msw32.inc"
[ ]  
[-] testcase BiosVersion() appstate none
    [ ] //Get regvalue for reg entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation
    [ ] 
    [ ] INTEGER iKey = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE // defined in msw32.inc
    [ ] 
    [ ] String sItem = "SystemBiosVersion"
    [ ]  
    [ ] 
    [ ] String sRegValue = SYS_GetRegistryValue (iKey, sPath, sItem)
    [ ] //Print (SYS_GetRegistryValue (iKey, sPath, sItem))
    [ ] 
    [ ] Print("The current SystemBiosVersion is: ",sRegValue)
[ ] //End Borland Code
[ ]
