What is the best method for filling structures such as OSVERSIONINFO if you have to do a lot of initial setup such a GetDevCap , GetVolumeInfo etc etc. Should this be done in response to WM_CREATE or is it better to do it through a thread or some other way.

Any help appreciated.

hi IwasTitan,

IMO much better in WM_CREATE or any place in your code where it gets to be executed only once. Why? it gets to be redundant if called consequently since you only want to get specific details of 1 machine. :)
