Application Detecting XP Embedded VS XP Professional

Application Detecting XP Embedded VS XP Professional

Post by YnZhbmRldH » Sat, 21 May 2005 05:52:06


Is there an officially blessed way for an application to detect that
it's running on XP Embedded versus a general purpose PC running XP
Home or Professional? (Some subfield of GetVersionEx or a Registry
entry perhaps?)

I have different pricing models for the two markets and I need to
be able to differenciate the two operating systems.

Thanks.

Check for the NT Embedded platform through OSVersionInfoEx

Be aware about the bug with GetVersionEx on XPe (SP1):
