  • Test for 32-bit Windows

    Anyone know if an environment variable
    can be tested to see if 32-bit Windows
    or higher is running? Trying to do this
    from within a batch file without the
    need to send out more code. Thank you.

    The world is full of apathy, but who cares?

    windows 95 sets up the environment variables windir and winbootdir. windows nt sets up a variable called os with a value of "windows_nt" (as well as the other two variables i mentioned).

    if you do end up resorting to using a program to determine this, there is some pb/dos code in the source code forum that may be of assistance.
    If you try to make something idiot-proof, someone will invent a better idiot.
