How to Detect OS of remote machine

Recommended Posts

I think this will be easy if someone knows the location that the @OSVersion pulls it's info from.

I am running a utility remotely on some servers but the return code is different on 2000 than 2003 so I need to modify the responces depending upon the server OS.

I figured I could just do a remote regread and look for wherever the @OSVersion info is pulled from.

Or does someone have any other way to do this?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

it holds several string values that may help:
