If you can open a command shell you can get the OS version with the

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

How do you do this from a program though. Under UNIX uname() is a
function call as well as a program. It returns the os name, version,
hostname and system type.

GetVersionEx() will get you the windows version, service pack, etc IIRC.
