Hi all,

Any idea how to differentiate between Windows Server 2003 (32bit), Windows Server 2003 (64bit) and Windows XP Pro (64bit)?

From their OS version, all of three of them are of version 5.2. The only thing
different between Server 2003 (32bit) and the latter two is that its 32bit and
the rest are 64bit.

Any advise?

Thanks in advance!

Launch cmd and run ver > somefilename.dat (output is directed to the file)
Then have Installshield read the text in the file somefilename.dat

I have not tried this as I do not have access to machines with all the OS's you mentioned.

Output to the file should look like the following.

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
