Microsoft Windows Operatin System Version Value

Knowing these values is good to know when software you want to install does not support my actual version of Windows. Usually there are available in the installers some configuration files (xml, ini, …etc.) which I can extract, change the values and repack the installer, to reflect your M$ OS version.

Of course 🙂 I can end up with not working software even installer finished without error because of some lower dll compatibility issues (functions missing, etc. but even that can be solved, but in different story). So for such basic overriding purposes here I have the microsoft windows operating system version table:
