Receiving VISA Alias instead of full address possible?

Is there a command that will return the VISA alias of all connected devices rather than the full address?

Using VB, I'm sending:
ResourceString = ioMgr.FindRsrc("?*INSTR")

This is nicely returning the full address of a connected USB device, but it is long and messy.  I'm trying to use the returned information to populate a drop down box (combobox) for my user to select which equipment they want to connect to, this way they do not need to open the Connection Expert to see what the device address or alias is. 

I can work with it as it is, but I'd rather be able to query for the alias names.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Cheers,

Jeff
