Would the MsiNTProductType property do what you need?

Hmmm...it's not exactly what one would call "granular", is it?!? smile.gif

If this were me, I'd use a WMI-based script, specifically, the OSProductSuite or ProductType property of the Win32_OperatingSystem class. Check out this MSDN article.

For the terminally idle, there's a nice script one could use as a template for this, available as a free d/l from MouseTrax. It's the Domain Report script.
