Detect Operating System

11 posts in this topic

Hello,

I need to be able to detect which operating system is installed and whether its 32 bit or 64 bit. I know there is a macro @OSVersion but I don't know how to use it, I cant seem to find the proper form to use it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Practice with this:

MsgBox(0, "", "CPU architecture = " & @OSArch & @CRLF & "OS Version = " & @OSVersion)

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Hello,

Try this

$osv = @OSVersion
$osBit = @OSArch

MsgBox(0,"OS Version", "OS: " & $osv & @CRLF & "Bit: " & $osBit)
;or just
MsgBox(0,"OS Version",  "OS: " & @OSVersion & @CRLF & "Bit: " & @OSArch)

Okay that information was very helpful, I just need help making this loop work, I thought I would be okay with the syntax but apparently not.

$osv = @OSVersion
$ost = @OSArch


MsgBox(0, "Version", "This is:" & @OSVersion)
    ;MsgBox(0, "", "CPU architecture = " & @OSArch & @CRLF & "OS Version = " & @OSVersion)
    MsgBox(0, "CPU Architecture", "This runs:" & @OSArch) 
    If $osv = WIN_XP or WIN_XPe Then
        MsgBox(0, "", "Now Installing Xp Version...")
        Break(1)
    ElseIf $ost = X64 Then
        MsgBox(0, "", "Installing Vista/7 64 bit whatever")
        Break(1)
    Else
    MsgBox(0,"","Installing Vista/7 32 bit whatever")
    EndIf

Try it this way, you missed the quotes around your comparison strings in your If..ElseIf statements

$osv = @OSVersion
$ost = @OSArch


MsgBox(0, "Version", "This is:" & @OSVersion)
;MsgBox(0, "", "CPU architecture = " & @OSArch & @CRLF & "OS Version = " & @OSVersion)
MsgBox(0, "CPU Architecture", "This runs:" & @OSArch)
If $osv = "WIN_XP" Or "WIN_XPe" Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Now Installing Xp Version...")
    Break(1)
ElseIf $ost = "X64" Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Installing Vista/7 64 bit whatever")
    Break(1)
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "Installing Vista/7 32 bit whatever")
EndIf

hmm, thank you for the help with the comparison , but this shows I am running xp , yet I am using windows 7, any ideas?

I don't know, because under Windows 7 on one of my computers it shows WIN_7 and an xp machine shows WIN_XP.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
