HI,
I need the code below to look at the remote system and determine if it’s a windows 7 or not.  The way its written it can only determine if the machine its running on is Windows 7 or no.

        private void button4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (Environment.OSVersion.Platform == PlatformID.Win32NT
                && Environment.OSVersion.Version.Major == 6
                && Environment.OSVersion.Version.Minor != 0)
                    {
                        data(stfamtv0001); //Sets Thin Client Variable
                        if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(hostname_value))
                        {
                            MessageBox.Show("Hostname was not set!");
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            System.Diagnostics.Process ps = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("pskill", hostname_value);
                            ps.WaitForExit();

                            data(stfamtv0002);
                            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(hostname_value))
                            {
                                MessageBox.Show("Hostname was not set!");
                            }
                            else
                            {
                                ps = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("psexec", hostname_value); ;
                                ps.WaitForExit();
                            }
                        }
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        MessageBox.Show("This is a Linux System");        
                // run code for Linux Debian system
                    }    
        }
