Hey Raymond,

Yes those do seem useful thank you!

Software type seems to always return: "Microsoft Windows" on Windows


Software version will return: "6.1 Build 7600 (Workstation)" on Windows 7 and "5.1 Build 2600 (Workstation)" on Windows XP.  This corresponds with what I read about the win32 function "getVersionEx" which should return a value above 5.0 for XP and 6.1 for Windows 7.  

Thanks a lot,
