Is there a way that I can gather the info that comes up in msinfo32.exe System Summary to dump to a text file with out actually opening msinfo and clicking the save text report button.

This is for a tech support deal. Have customer run the program then have the contents of the file sent to support so we know RAM/OS/etc.

Or is there some other way to gather the msinfo32 info?

well i can give ya the msinfo code stuff:
VB.NET:
 Dim ConfigKey, SubKey As RegistryKey
		Dim msInfoPath As String
		Dim msInfoProcess As New Process
		ConfigKey = Registry.LocalMachine
		SubKey = ConfigKey.OpenSubKey("Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSInfo", False)
		msInfoPath = Convert.ToString(SubKey.GetValue("Path"))
		msInfoProcess.Start(msInfoPath)
		msInfoProcess.Dispose()
but for the gathering of the info to save as text file... i dunno right now, but i'll look into it sometime here
