    SYS_GetName returns NT for Win2K

    Hi,

    Is there a way to find out whether the OS on the target system is WIn 2000? The SYS_GetName returns NT for Windows 2000 also, the online help claims this is correct since Win2K is built on NT.
    The problem I have is that we use Microsoft Management Console, MMC and the context menus are different on Win2K versus NT, so I need to have different defns.
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Try SYS_GetVersion(). This will give different version numbers for the different platforms.

    I use the built-in function GetGuiType(). Check it out.
