System Information Unit v5.0.0 released
Version 5 of the System Information Unit has just been released. It adds support for detectinng Windows 8.1 and Window 2012 Server R2. There are also numerous new methods for testing for the presence of every Windows OS and service pack since Windows 2000. The underlying code has had to be revised to work around Microsoft's deprecation of the old GetVersion API functions and its other rather bonkers ideas that make detecting Windows 8.1 harder than it should be!
