Yes!

This involves the modification or addition of the OEMINFO.ini file to the C:\windows\system32 folder. A typical OEMINFO.ini file looks like the following:
    [General]
    Manufacturer=
    Model=
    SupportURL=

    [Support Information]
    Line1=
    Line2=
    Line3=
    Line4=
    Line5=
    Line6=
    Line7=
    LINE8=


Where it says Model= is what the UD Agent will display. If there is no OEMINFO.ini file or Model= is left blank, it will display the standard "My Device."



If your OEMINFO.ini file is customized, it will display the Model= information.



The OEMINFO.ini file is also displayed in the properties of My Computer and generally contains information about your model and make of computer as well as information about contacting support. The OEMLOGO.bmp file is often paired with the OEMINFO.ini file and is displayed with that information. An example of the two files together are shown below as displayed in the My Computer Properties.

For the changes to take effect in the UD Agent, you must exit and then restart the client.



When customizing the OEMINFO.ini file, be sure to not have spaces between the equal signs and the following text. Space between words normally. The OEMLOGO.bmp file must be no larger than 180 pixels wide by 114 pixels high.
