First, you know there is a basic version variable in %os%, right?

Second, you can use a command like this:
for /f "tokens=* delims=" %%a in ('ver') do @set osversion=%%a

The above command will assign the output of the command ver to the varible %osversion%

If this is not what you are looking for, please try to be more specific.
