    Current Operating System


    Is there any functions available in Vb which will return the operating system
    of the machine?

    Thanks,

    RK: OK, now you're not even trying. ;-) This question gets asked and
    answered here about once a week. A search for "operating system" at
    http://www.codehound.com/vb returned the following:
    http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/code/system/getversionex.htm .

    Please make at least SOME effort to find the answer to a question (searching
    at groups.google.com and/or www.codehound.com/vb are a good place to start)
    before posting it here. Thanks!

    Re: Current Operating System


    VB as a native control SYSINFO. Use the 'OSPlatform' parameter to retrieve
    the os platform or other properties like osbuild, osversion etc. The MSDN
    gives example on how to use. Simple!
