Hello everyone,

I have the need, to determine if the version of Vista on the pc, is a HOME edition or not.

And I can’t seem to figure out a way to do that.

Has anyone else actually DONE so ?

And if you have, would you share with me how you DID do it ?

The following works to determine if the OS is XP home edition.

if (SYSINFO.nSuites & ISOS_ST_XP_HOME) then /* Perform operations that are
specific to Windows XP Home Edition. */


But I can't quite figure out how to do something similar so that I can tell if the OS is a HOME version of Vista.

Thanks in advance for all replies.

If ISOS_ST_XP_HOME doesn't work on Vista (I haven't tried) then maybe SYSINFO.nOSSuiteMask with VER_SUITE_PERSONAL will do the trick.
