@OSVersion detects WIN_VISTA

For this script I need to differenciate between vista and windows 7. I have searched the forums but have been unable to find a answer.

When will with @OSVersion be updated to display WIN_7?

Is there another way to detect Windows 7 that you use?

You can use GetVersionEx (that's what autoit uses internally).

Do a search for GetVersionEx to get sample usage.


Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!

It already has. The stable version doesn't have it sinse it came before Win7, but the latest betas will report "WIN_7" as expected.

I have been using this bit of code to assign the name of the OS to a variable that I can use elsewhere in my scripts.

Global $nOSversion = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion", "CurrentVersion") ; Assign OS version number to variable

; Assign OS name to string variable depending on OS version number
Switch $nOSversion
    Case 6.1
        Global $sOSName = "Windows 7"
    Case 6.0
        Global $sOSName = "Windows Vista"
    Case 5.1
        Global $sOSName = "Windows XP"
    Case 5.0
        Global $sOSName = "Windows 2000"
    Case Else
        Global $sOSName = "Old Windows Version"
EndSwitch
