This might not be the ideal way but normally I use:
Set oShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
arrRegValue = oShell.RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Micros oft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProductName")
This will read the productName value in the reg and depending on the value do whatever. Normally if u only running 2 OS versions you could only check for the common one then assume the rest would be the other.
