I am trying to uniquely identify what screen/projector is connected to an output.
This information should be in the EDID.
In Windows 10 It is possible to get the monitor’s serial number using the WMI utility
see this example:
activexperts.com/admin/scri … thon/0073/
The monitors Dat orders its “index” based on X/Left position of the display arrangement. The windows display manager index ordering shows a completely different index order and seems arbitrary.
But I think it is in the order it was plugged in. WMI orders its list of displays in the same order, but it doesn’t reveal an “index” variable or a screen position, just a unique display name.
Where is the “name” column in the Monitors Dat coming from in the system level? how come WMI comes up with a very different name? Any way to identify what display WMI is referring to in the Monitors Dat list?
how can I connect the data I am finding with WMI to the spacial coordinates shown in the Monitors DAT? I can’t figure out how to get screen position from WMI or I would use that as a way to identity each display.
