Summary0000399: XP version recognition incorrect
DescriptionForgive me if this has been adressed verbally in some way as not something you wish to work on. I was just suprised to find this is still an issue as I have not been in touch for some time and I am eager to start testing again since I have some new machines to test the Driverpacks on.
When selecting my Corporate version of XP SP2 it tells me it is the Retail version. Neither RyanVM Integrator nor Powerpacker notices it as such, they are correct in finding it is the Corporate version.
TagsNo tags attached.

Appears I made a mistake when creating this bug report (a bug in the bug report :) ) It is not the Base Finisher. Just the Base. I should have selected Base Misc.

I'm wondering about ruudboek and the bug report being assigned to this account. Seems ruudboek hasn't had any real activity in the system since last year.
I guess my report has gone into the black hole.
- Hey, I also want to say that I realize Sneaky is probably really busy. I want to pass on my appreciation for all the work done with the DriverPacks. This is one of THE BEST projects out. A huge thanks goes to all who make the Driverpacks what they are. -

That's why it was assigned to ruudboek, he agreed to maintain the Finisher but hasn't been doing that really...

The version detection code is provided by Siginet and he told me this was an edge case so didn't really feel like solving it. You have a very, very special copy of XP somehow ;)

I'm not willing to solve this extremely minor problem, the XP detection code is super ugly ;) (and not even written by me, as I just mentioned).

Yeah, I thought Siginet did the version detection, I remember him telling me that. - I know, it's not an important thing. I just wasn't naming my directories very well, so didn't know what version was in a directory. But the one I do know is Win XP Pro w/SP2 Corporate Ed. and it shows as Home ver.

The weird thing is that the version detection works fine in the integrator and Powerpacker. But I know Siginet has been pretty busy lately with coding. Just something I thought I'd mention, a bug to be fixed in the future sometime.

fixing this would require one of the coders to have a rare copy of the OS
most corporate disks are detected correctly.

Since none of us has the damaged disk to test with it will not be feasable to reproduce and therefore not feasable to update the detection code.

Since this issue has not been reported by anyone else in almost a year i would tend to agree with everyone else that this issue is an isolated one.
(it only affects one user, to our knowledge of course.)

I am going to close this issue unless it is reported again by someone else
