Hi,

I think it would be helpful if the Tech Support Guy System Info Utility would show the Windows 10 version number. As Windows has a new release every 6 months, and new features appear.

That's a great idea. Should we aim for just the version number, or might the build be useful as well? I'm not sure how difficult it will be to get either bit of information, so you vote might not matter much, but I expect that either would be relatively simple.

I would like to see the build number also.

Code:
BuildNumber

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32API|System Information Structures|OSVERSIONINFOEX|dwBuildNumber")

Build number of an operating system. It can be used for more precise version information than product release version numbers.

Example: "1381"

---
So, for the above, that looks like the Build, which you have already. But what about "Product Release Version"?

Is this it here:


Code:
Version

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Override ("Version"), MappingStrings ("Win32API|System Information Structures|OSVERSIONINFOEX|dwMajorVersion, dwMinorVersion")

Version number of the operating system.

Example: "4.0"

Thanks for looking! We're actually using "Version" in the current app, which returns the less exciting "Windows 10" rather than an actual version number. I suspect we may need to find another way to poll that data, but will need to do so carefully to make sure the app continues to work properly in order versions of Windows. Things are pretty busy through the holidays, but I will do some more digging after the new year. Feel free to keep hunting as well and remind me in the new year. ;)

Oki doki, will do some testing this weekend, found something that looks interesting, but will test on my Win10 and (gasp, horror) my Vista laptop, to see if it works for both :)

"properly in order versions of Windows"
I hope you mean "older"?

Yup, I meant older. Sorry, I often reply from my phone and am pretty good at making typos. ;)
