How to: Retrieve the Local Machine Name (C++/CLI)

The following code example demonstrates the retrieval of the local machine name (the name of the computer as it appears on a network). You can accomplish this by getting the MachineName string, which is defined in the Environment namespace.

// machine_name.cpp
// compile with: /clr
using namespace System;

int main() 
   Console::WriteLine("\nMachineName: {0}", Environment::MachineName);
   return 0;
