Returns the OS Version in a more human read-able format.

Sample Input:
( )
Sample Output:
Windows XP 32 Bit


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

This function should return the system platform (OSX PPC, OSX Intel, Windows) and then attempt to determine the O/S's name (XP, Tiger, etc). This will work already with Leopard, but I didn't have a Vista machine avaiable to add support for vista.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Needs updating to Snow Leopard and Windows 7.

I know Colt and I doubt he's working in FileMaker anymore (the above function will likely not get updated anytime soon). For an updated version of this function, use GetPlatformName():
