    How To Tell, Win98 or 98SE

    What's the simplest/best/fastest way to tell if a PC is running Win 98 or Win98 Second Edition?

    Right click My Computer, select Properties. General tab will show O/S info. Mine says:

    System:
    Microsoft Windows 98
    Second Edition
    4.10.2222 A

    Alan,

    This one must be plain ol' Win98, then, as it just says:

    Microsoft Windows 98
    4.10.1998

    Yep <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> it appears to be the case. It could be one of several possibilities:

    <table border=1><td>OS RELEASE</td><td>VERSION</td><td>MS-DOS REVISION</td><td>DATE + TIME</td><td>BUILD<td>Windows 98 retail final</td><td>4.10.1998</td><td>7.10 [4.10.1998]</td><td>05-11-98 + 20:01:00</td><td>4.10.1998.6<td>Windows 98 OEM final</td><td>4.10.1998</td><td>7.10 [4.10.1998]</td><td>05-11-98 + 20:01:00</td><td>4.10.1998.6<td>Windows 98 Upgrade final</td><td>4.10.1998</td><td>7.10 [4.10.1998]</td><td>05-11-98 + 20:01:00</td><td>4.10.1998.6<td></table>
    If you want the full list of IDs, take a look at WINDOWS 95 -> 98 -> ME VERSION + BUILD TABLE.
