Problem with FileXtra4 - FolderSelectDialog

When using FileXtra4  command fx.FolderSelectDialog() on Mac OS 10.4 the address returned ends with a colon(:) When used under OS 10.5 the address is returned without the colon - giving a false address.when added to other info.
How can I get the exact version of the OS operating system and tell the difference???
BuddyAPI  baVersion("OS")  only returns "OS10"
Can't think of any other way
Can anybody help - Please

Have you tried a simple test to see if the string ends with a colon, and appending one if there isn't?

Hope this helps,

strFolder = fx.FolderSelectDialog()
if (strFolder.char[strFolder.length] <> ":") then
  strFolder = strFolder & ":"
end if
