The only other way I know is through the GetVersionEx() call.
Member 9404971 22-Oct-12 6:12am
other than name and its version.. do the os have any other unique id or code anything like that?

Not that I have seen, all the information that is available is provided by this function.

It depends on context, I believe. Here[^] for instance, you may find some info related to programming for different Windows OS.
