Server 2019 shows Server 2016


New Member
I just "feature"-updated our Windows Servers 2016 to 2019
and just wondered why HWInfo 6.00-3620 still shows "Server 2016" instead of "Server 2019"

btw: Even the good old BGINFO on the Desktops has the correct version

Selecting this via WMI seems to be a way to handle it perfectly

WMI Class:        Win32_OperatingSystem
Class Property:  Caption
as WMI Query:  SELECT Caption FROM Win32_OperatingSystem

Query Result (in my case) = Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
