Inside of C++, would I be able to check to see which Microsoft Windows version I'm using? I want to see if it is Windows 7 or even higher than that. Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Remember to:

  • Add a reference to System.Management.dll
  • using System.Management;
string query = "SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem";
ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = new ManagementObjectSearcher(query);

foreach (ManagementObject info in searcher.Get())
{
    //info.Properties["Caption"].Value.ToString().Trim()
    //info.Properties["Version"].Value.ToString()
    //info.Properties["ServicePackMajorVersion"].Value.ToString()
    //info.Properties["ServicePackMinorVersion"].Value.ToString()
}
