The info I need is the same as when you go to "My Network Places", then "Entire Network", then "Microsoft Windows Network", then find any computer on the network and do Right-Mouse Button and then Properties. The part where it says "Type:" is the info I need to get, i.e., "Windows 2000 Professional", "Windows NT Server", etc.
This is NOT just a simple computer OS type like "Windows 2000", "Windows XP", etc. I need to know whether it is Professional, Server, etc. So it needs to be that exact info that is seen in the Type: field.
I'm guessing there is a Windows 2000/XP API function for this, but I can't find it. I do not wish to use WMI unless absolutely necessary. If it can be done through the registry, that would be fine, but again, I haven't found anything that shows me what I need.
Please see the attached image for a visual example.
If you know how to do this and have an example app. to send, this would be preferable as I almost always choose the first bid with a working example, no matter what the bid amount is.
Also, this needs to be in Visual Basic 6.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
Windows 2000, Windows XP
