I need to know, which version of Windows is running behind my program.
I have to determine if it's Win3.1 or Win95 with Delphi1.0.

Dear ronit,Thank you for fast answer, but it doesn't work for me.I have found this API function in Win32, but there isn't this function in the 16bit API.I need the function (or any other solution) in Win3.1 with 16bit API.

There is a GetVersion function that exists both on 16 and 32 bits.

Using Delphi 1....

VAR Win95: BOOLEAN;

Win95 := LoWord(GetVersion) >= $5F03;

This can be used on a 16 platform using Delphi 1.  

Cheers,
Ian C.
