With XP end of life approaching soon I'm in need of a way to find out what machine has XP and what machine does not do I can reinstall or replace the  OS.   I only need the OS type and machine name.  I tried:

Set /p var= enter the computer file:

wmic /node:%var% os get CSName, Version, Caption> "C:\list.csv

but I'm getting RPC errors.  Is there a better way?

You could put spiceworks on to inventory the entire network or Query AD for a list of OSs on the workstations.
