Here it is:  

Just add a textbox to the form and upon form load you will get the OS version and type:


Private Type MYVERSION
    lMajorVersion As Long
    lMinorVersion As Long
    lExtraInfo As Long
End Type

Private Type OSVERSIONINFO
    dwOSVersionInfoSize As Long
    dwMajorVersion As Long
    dwMinorVersion As Long
    dwBuildNumber As Long
    dwPlatformId As Long
    szCSDVersion As String * 128 ' Maintenance string for PSS usage
End Type
'// Windows Version constants
Private Const VER_PLATFORM_WIN32s = 0
Private Const VER_PLATFORM_WIN32_WINDOWS = 1
Private Const VER_PLATFORM_WIN32_NT = 2
'// Windows Version Declaration
Private Declare Function GetVersionEx Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetVersionExA" (ByRef lpVersionInformation As OSVERSIONINFO) As Long
'// Windows Version Function
Private Function WindowsVersion() As MYVERSION
    Dim myOS As OSVERSIONINFO, WinVer As MYVERSION
    Dim lResult As Long

    myOS.dwOSVersionInfoSize = Len(myOS) 'should be 148

    lResult = GetVersionEx(myOS)

    'Fill user type with pertinent info
    WinVer.lMajorVersion = myOS.dwMajorVersion
    WinVer.lMinorVersion = myOS.dwMinorVersion
    WinVer.lExtraInfo = myOS.dwPlatformId

    WindowsVersion = WinVer

End Function

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim myVer As MYVERSION
    Dim strTmp As String
    Dim vers As Long
    myVer = WindowsVersion()

    If myVer.lMajorVersion = 4 Then
        If myVer.lExtraInfo = VER_PLATFORM_WIN32_NT Then
            strTmp = "Windows NT version : " 
        ElseIf myVer.lExtraInfo = VER_PLATFORM_WIN32_WINDOWS Then
            vers = myVer.lMinorVersion
            If vers <= 10 Then
                strTmp = "Windows 98 version : " 
            Else
                strTmp = "Windows 95 version : " 
            End If
        End If
    Else
        strTmp = "Windows version : " 
    End If

    Text1.Text = strTmp & myVer.lMajorVersion & "." & myVer.lMinorVersion
End Sub

Yeah, it's the reference on the other code that you provided.  I thought it was very nicely written and believed you deserved the credit.  

Unfortunately, the other project isn’t complete.  But at least it’s a great start.  I think I will set that project aside and tackle it another time.  It's a larger project than originally intended.  Besides, I found some simpler projects to work on while researching the other one.

Thanks for your assistance, it was a tremendous help!!!

Cheers,
Maxell
