i have question regarding host checker: OS Check. we want to allow user to access our network if Operating system that user use is windows xp professional only but from UAC predefined OS Check only have windows xp without the edition, that's means if we choose windows xp, user that use windows xp home edition also can pass the host checker policy.
is it any other way to specify the specific windows xp edition?
We can only check host checker Windows XP- 32/64 bit , windows 7 etc only with Minimum Service Pack/Version: like SP1 and SP2.
We can't check the specific edition using the this option, however you can try this by using Add Custom Rule : Registry Setting option where you need to specify the path where it shows the current edition or version of windows OS like home/professional etc.
Hope this helps.
I tried finding the registry path however we are unable to retrive the edition from the bewlow mentioned path in registry:
So If you are able to find the regitry path information which has the edition of the windows machine, then we can try assisting you on this
You should be able to get the OS edition from below key,
Windows 7 machines has this key be default.
