     OSVERSIONINFO osver;
      osver.dwOSVersionInfoSize = sizeof(OSVERSIONINFO);

      DWORD ver = GetVersionEx(&osver);
      CString msg;
      msg.Format("%u.%u.%u", osver.dwMajorVersion, osver.dwMinorVersion, LOWORD(osver.dwBuildNumber));
      SetDlgItemText(IDC_VERSION, msg);

4.00.950 is the first (retail) release of Win95. The other one will be OSR 2.
