Detecting the windows version running on your machine

As I said in the previous version of this article that as soon as the information about Windows 98 becomes available, I will update the files. Since Microsoft has updated the SDK documentation for Windows 98 OS information, I have modified the source code for exclusive detection for Windows 98.

The following modification has been made for checking the major and minor version of OS.


if ((versionInfo.dwMajorVersion > 4) || ((versionInfo.dwMajorVersion == 4) && (versionInfo.dwMinorVersion > 0))) {

m_stInfo = _T ("Windows 98"); }
Otherwise the rest of code remains the same. In the next update I will try to add detection for Windows NT 5.0. With the release of beta version most of the information is available.
