System.Environment namespace provides all the functionality to extract the environment information -- like UserName and OS version, for instance.

File GetEnvInfo.vb

  Imports System
      Class GetEnvInfo
        Shared Sub main()

            Console.WriteLine("Logged On User") 

            Console.WriteLine("Machine Name") 

            Console.WriteLine("OS version") 

            Console.WriteLine("System Directory") 

            Console.WriteLine("TMP Folder") 

            Console.WriteLine("Class Path") 

        End Sub
End Class

Compile the file as Vbc GetEnvInfo.vb. Execute GetEnvInfo.exe and see the results.
