Current Computer Name on Windows 95/NT

You often want to know the name of the current computer running Windows 95 or Windows NT in your VB program. Use this simple wrapper function of a kernel32.dll API function to do the job:
Private Declare Function GetComputerNameA Lib "kernel32"_
        (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize _
        As Long) As Long

Public Function GetMachineName() As _
        Dim sBuffer As String * 255
        If GetComputerNameA(sBuffer, 255&) _
                <> 0 Then
                GetMachineName = Left$(sBuffer, _
                        InStr(sBuffer, vbNullChar) _
                        - 1)
                GetMachineName = "(Not Known)"
        End If
End Function
