Try using VAMT CIL on the licencing server to grab the SKUs

E3 =  AAA-51069 - Win10UsrOLSActv Alng MonthlySub Addon E3
E5 =  AAA-51068 - Win10UsrOLSActv Alng MonthlySub Addon E5
Not sure you can grab from individual workstations yet as the SKU key in the registry isn't currently updated by subscription services
But you could look in either msinfo32 or check for an EditionSubString at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

Are you able to run a PowerShell command like the following?

PS C:\> [System.Environment]::OSVersion.Version

Open in new window


or

PS C:\> (gwmi win32_operatingsystem).caption

Open in new window

Hello Martin, thanks for your comment. But it only lists the Major, Minor, Build, and Revision. That information is about the version, rather than the edition.

My question is how can I recognize with one specific computer is licensed as Windows Enterprise, E3 or E5?

Did you try that second command which should put out the version string?

These are the expected v10 versions:

PS C:\> (gwmi win32_operatingsystem).caption

Open in new window


Windows 10 Home
Windows 10 Pro
Windows 10 Education
Windows 10 Enterprise E3
Windows 10 Enterprise E5

Hey thanks again,

That seems a bit closer.

But I have two different machines, one is running Win10Ent and another one Win10EntE5, and I am getting the same output for both of them:

Windows 10 Enterprise

Not specifying if they are E3 or E5

So I think at the core the OS major and minor levels should be the same, can you confirm that ?

The only delta I can see are some installed service apps... there should a remote command combo to check for the existence of one or more of these to qualify as E5:

  • Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection
  • Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack
  • BranchCache
  • Windows to Go

Thanks for your emails...

Anyone of you are using specifically Windows 10 E3 or E5?

Not the regular Enterprise edition.
