OperatingSystem.Version Property

Gets a System.Version object that identifies the operating system.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public Version Version { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Version
A Version object that describes the major version, minor version, build, and revision numbers for the operating system.

The following code example creates several OperatingSystem objects and displays the Version property for each.


// Example for the OperatingSystem.Platform and 
// OperatingSystem.Version properties.
using System;

class PlatformVersionDemo
{
    // Create an OperatingSystem object and display the Platform
    // and Version properties.
    static void BuildOSObj( PlatformID pID, Version ver )
    {
        OperatingSystem opSys   = new OperatingSystem( pID, ver );
        PlatformID platform     = opSys.Platform;
        Version version         = opSys.Version;

        Console.WriteLine( "   Platform: {0,-15} Version: {1}", 
            platform, version );
    } 

    static void BuildOperatingSystemObjects( )
    { 
        // The Version object does not need to correspond to an 
        // actual OS version.
        Version verNull     = new Version( );
        Version verString   = new Version( "3.5.8.13" );
        Version verMajMin   = new Version( 6, 10 );
        Version verMMBld    = new Version( 5, 25, 5025 );
        Version verMMBVer   = new Version( 5, 6, 7, 8 );

        // All PlatformID members are shown here.
        BuildOSObj( PlatformID.Win32NT, verNull );
        BuildOSObj( PlatformID.Win32S, verString );
        BuildOSObj( PlatformID.Win32Windows, verMajMin );
        BuildOSObj( PlatformID.WinCE, verMMBld );
        BuildOSObj( PlatformID.Win32NT, verMMBVer );
    } 

    static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine(
            "This example of OperatingSystem.Platform " +
            "and OperatingSystem.Version \n" +
            "generates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine(
            "Create several OperatingSystem objects " +
            "and display their properties:\n" );

        BuildOperatingSystemObjects( );

        Console.WriteLine(
            "\nThe operating system of the host computer is:\n" );

        BuildOSObj(
            Environment.OSVersion.Platform, 
            Environment.OSVersion.Version );
    } 
}
