More detailed information to OS Version in Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to get more detailed information to OS Version?

    Actual Version just delivers "Windows 10", but I would be interested at least in

    Windows 1809, 1803, ...

    Better would even be the information containing the build and UBR

    1803 (17134.285)

    This would be a perfect enhancement :-)

  • Hi,

    Do you have a requirement to use BGInfo or can you use other options?

    With the Command Prompt or PowerShell it's easy to get a detailed OS version information.

    Command Prompt

    ver

    wmic os get version

    PowerShell

    [Environment]::OSVersion

    systeminfo /fo csv | ConvertFrom-CSV | select OS* | Format-List

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Thanks for the detailed list of possibilities. I know some of them and I have written a powershell script to check remote the UBR to see if the computers in the lab are up to date.

    The requirement for the bginfo: It is running on all lab computers and it would be the a very easy way to see that the computers are up to date.

  • You can create a custom field, like below and get the build information:

  • Perfect Solution! Thanks a lot :-)

    I'm using two custom fields. First one as you described and second one registry value:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\UBR
