Windows XP TabletPC how to?

3 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a way to tell if the system is normal Windows XP or Windows XP TabletPC version. The thing is that OSTYPE, OSVersion, OSBuild, OSServicePack, ProcessorArch are the same for both. I know i could check for Windows License Key and compare them but maybe there's an easier way to tell what is what?

The only way I've seen to work (relatively) reliably is to check if the following registry key exists:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Tablet PC\Ident
