VBscript: Check OS Version Information and Detect 32-bit or 64-bit Windows

A little script to check the version of the OS

Set dtmConvertedDate = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemDateTime")

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colOperatingSystems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem")

For Each objOperatingSystem in colOperatingSystems
    Wscript.Echo "Boot Device: " & objOperatingSystem.BootDevice
    Wscript.Echo "Build Number: " & objOperatingSystem.BuildNumber
    Wscript.Echo "Build Type: " & objOperatingSystem.BuildType
    Wscript.Echo "Caption: " & objOperatingSystem.Caption
    Wscript.Echo "Code Set: " & objOperatingSystem.CodeSet
    Wscript.Echo "Country Code: " & objOperatingSystem.CountryCode
    Wscript.Echo "Debug: " & objOperatingSystem.Debug
    Wscript.Echo "Encryption Level: " & objOperatingSystem.EncryptionLevel
    dtmConvertedDate.Value = objOperatingSystem.InstallDate
    dtmInstallDate = dtmConvertedDate.GetVarDate
    Wscript.Echo "Install Date: " & dtmInstallDate
    Wscript.Echo "Licensed Users: " & _
        objOperatingSystem.NumberOfLicensedUsers
    Wscript.Echo "Organization: " & objOperatingSystem.Organization
    Wscript.Echo "OS Language: " & objOperatingSystem.OSLanguage
    Wscript.Echo "OS Product Suite: " & objOperatingSystem.OSProductSuite
    Wscript.Echo "OS Type: " & objOperatingSystem.OSType
    Wscript.Echo "Primary: " & objOperatingSystem.Primary
    Wscript.Echo "Registered User: " & objOperatingSystem.RegisteredUser
    Wscript.Echo "Serial Number: " & objOperatingSystem.SerialNumber
    Wscript.Echo "Version: " & objOperatingSystem.Version
Next

Detect 32-bit or 64-bit Windows

There are 2 options here

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

OsType = WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment\PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE")

If OsType = "x86" then
wscript.echo & "Windows 32bit system detected"
elseif OsType = "AMD64" then
wscript.echo & "Windows 64bit system detected"
end if

A simpler and more correcter way would be

wscript.echo GetObject("winmgmts:root\cimv2:Win32_Processor='cpu0'").AddressWidth

Putting this together in an Html Application (HTA) makes:

<html>
<head>
<title>Outlook ReProfiling ...</title>

<HTA:APPLICATION
ID="objHTAOutlReProfiling"
APPLICATIONNAME="OutlReProfiling"
SCROLL="no"
SINGLEINSTANCE="yes"
WINDOWSTATE="maximize"
>
</head>

<style type="text/css">
div.centered{
display:block;
position:absolute;
top:5%;
left:10%;
width:80%;
}
</style>

<body>
<div id=DataAreaNL>
</div>
</doby>
<SCRIPT Language="VBScript">
Set dtmConvertedDate = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemDateTime")
