Use FileGetVersion(@SystemDir & "Winver.exe"), that will get you the version number of the the OS. Also, there's a Winver.exe in both System32 and SysWoW64, so it wouldn't matter if the script is compiled as either x86 or x64.


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.

Here is 2 ways 

Local $tagOSVERSIONINFO = DllStructCreate('dword dwOSVersionInfoSize;dword dwMajorVersion;dword dwMinorVersion;dword dwBuildNumber;dword dwPlatformId;char szCSDVersion[128]')
DllStructSetData($tagOSVERSIONINFO, 'dwOSVersionInfoSize', DllStructGetSize($tagOSVERSIONINFO))
Local $aReturn = DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'int', 'GetVersionEx', 'struct*', $tagOSVERSIONINFO)
$Windows_Version = DllStructGetData($tagOSVERSIONINFO, 'dwMajorVersion') & '.' & DllStructGetData($tagOSVERSIONINFO, 'dwMinorVersion')
$Windows_Version = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion", "CurrentVersion")

Another way.

#include <WinAPISys.au3>

ConsoleWrite('Windows version: ' & _WinAPI_GetVersion() & @CRLF)

There's also a _WinAPI_GerVersionEx, which is probably the same as step887's first script.

What fun would this be without a WMI verison...

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\.\root\CIMV2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem", "WQL")

If IsObj($colItems) then
    for $colitem in $colitems
        ConsoleWrite('Caption      = ' & $colItem.caption & @CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite('Verison      = ' & $colItem.version & @CRLF)
    Next
endif
