@OSServicePack help

4 posts in this topic

I know how and what @OSServicePack returns in value, however can anyone tell me where it obtains the info from. I would imagine that it is stored in the registry...but which key?

This info would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Willow.

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

Value: CSDVersion

Would be my guess.

Well knowing Valik I have serious doubts that it's getting that info from the registry. It's more apt to be from a call to the Windows API.

Valik hates code that relies on the registry.

True, the macro itself most likely uses GetVersionEx() documented http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724451(VS.85).aspx

See http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=86024&view=findpost&p=742429) for an AutoIt example.

$a=_GetVersionEx()
MsgBox(0,"",$a[4])

Func _GetVersionEx()
    Local $OsArray[5] = [""]
    Local $osvi = DllStructCreate("dword size;dword OsMajor;dword OsMinor;dword build;dword platform;char verString[128]")
    If @error Then
        Return SetError(@error, 1, 0)
    EndIf
    DllStructSetData($osvi, "size", 148)
    If @error Then
                $osvi = 0
        Return SetError(@error, 2, 0)
    EndIf
    Local $retVal = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "int", "GetVersionExA", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($osvi))
    If @error Then
                $osvi = 0
        Return SetError(@error, 3, 0)
    EndIf
    $OsArray[0] = String(DllStructGetData($osvi, "OsMajor"))
    $OsArray[1] = String(DllStructGetData($osvi, "OsMinor"))
    $OsArray[2] = String(DllStructGetData($osvi, "build"))
    $OsArray[3] = String(DllStructGetData($osvi, "platform"))
    $OsArray[4] = DllStructGetData($osvi, "verString")
        $osvi = 0
    Return $OsArray
EndFunc
