NumberOfCPUs - The number of processors

Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

' Return the number of processors
' Requires the CheckRegistryKey routine

Function GetNumberOfCPUs() As Integer
    Dim keyName As String
    ' loop on the subkeys of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Hardware\Description\System\
    ' CentralProcessor
    ' subkeys are zero-based
        GetNumberOfCPUs = GetNumberOfCPUs + 1
        keyName = "Hardware\Description\System\CentralProcessor\" & CStr _
        ' if this key doesn't exist, then GetNumberOfCPUs
        ' contains the number of keys found so far
    Loop While CheckRegistryKey(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, keyName)
End Function
