    We are considering adding this capability to Inventory but, as of this point, this data isn't natively available in the program.

    Thanks for posting. I should elaborate. We know where to grab it but our current custom (file and registry) scanners can't parse WMI. To do this via WMI you'd need two steps (which I wouldn't recommend). One to run a deployment package which extracts these values and then writes them to the registry. Step Two would use a registry scanner to collect that data that was written from WMI.

    We are considering placing this info natively into a video card scanner.

    We are also considering creating a custom WMI scanner.

    Thanks for posting.

    Unfortunately the only way to get the data you requested is if there is a logged on user at the time of the scan. Otherwise Windows reports 1024 x 768. Since many machines are scanned when users are not logged on this method does not work well for PDQ Inventory.
