How to retrieve the OS version of remote computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • All..

    How can I get a Windows OS version of a remote computer using any WINAPI. Assumng that both the computers are in the same domain and well connected.

    I am using C\C++ language and I tried NetServerGetInfo\NetWkstaGetInfo functions. But these API's do require workstation service should be up and running on the remote computer. While this services are not running there.

    Is there any other method to get the OS version.

    I hope this is the right place to ask this question, if not pls let me know the correct place.
    Any help is very well appreciated.
