I have a program written in BCB and I have to detect the OS it's running on, it's because it accesses the parrallel port which has other routines in 9x than in NT, before accessing the ParPort I have to make choise between NT and 9x OS, can anyone help me?

Simply use this code snippet:

    OSVERSIONINFO   VerInfo;

    VerInfo.dwOSVersionInfoSize =   sizeof  (   OSVERSIONINFO);
   
    GetVersionEx(   &VerInfo);
   
    if  (   VER_PLATFORM_WIN32_NT   ==  VerInfo.dwPlatformId)
        {
            // NT
        }
     else   // 9x

BTW: Differentiating between 95 and 98 is also possible, but requires evaluating the build number - feel free to ask if you need to do that also...
