How to detect XP Home vs. XP Pro, etc.

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I need a way to figure out whether the user's machine is running Windows XP Home, Windows XP Pro, or something else. I found the various @OS macros, but from what I can see, none of them will tell me if the user's machine is Home or Pro.

Is there a registry key somewhere that tells me this?

Thanks.

Hi,

I don´t know whether that helps you, but I think the file c:\winnt\system32\GPEDIT.MSC only exits on WIN XP Pro. :lmao:

I googled up an MSDN article with an answer... ;)

But it's an ugly, awkward, long-way-around, very microsoft-ish kind of answer... o:)

Maybe some scripter out there could turn that into an AutoIT UDF... hmm... hint, hint... :lmao:

That approach sounds like an excellent idea to me - Something that I would come up with on my own actually. Of course, I am new to this ... So be careful! :lmao:

Requires Beta, from a post that Valuater made yesterday I believe, I just pulled the info you were asking about:

$objWMIService = objget("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")

$colSettings = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem")

For $objOperatingSystem in $colSettings
    $Type = StringMid($objOperatingSystem.Caption, 22)
    MsgBox(0, '', $Type)
Next

Edit:

Narrowed it down to the actual type...
