windows-release Build Status

Get the name of a Windows version from the release number: 5.1.2600XP

Install

$ npm install windows-release

Usage

const os = require('os');
const windowsRelease = require('windows-release');

// On a Windows XP system

windowsRelease();
//=> 'XP'

os.release();
//=> '5.1.2600'

windowsRelease(os.release());
//=> 'XP'

windowsRelease('4.9.3000');
//=> 'ME'

API

windowsRelease([release])

release

Type: string

By default, the current OS is used, but you can supply a custom release number, which is the output of os.release().

Note: Most Windows Server versions cannot be detected based on the release number alone. There is runtime detection in place to work around this, but it will only be used if no argument is supplied, or the supplied argument matches os.release().
