    so far OK.
    So we will take WinUpdate from COM, and WMP version - from DLL.

    can you post screenshot of SystemInfo?
    I took possible values from https://msdn.microsoft.com/ru-ru/library/windows/desktop/ms724358(v=vs.85).aspx but, as it seems, some entries there are too version-specific (and outdated) or just plain wrong (as in case of Server 2012 E being described as SBS).
    I will provide the updated version of test tool tonight.

    @Vasilich
    I think the reason might be described a little in the remarks:
    Show Spoiler

    Remarks
    To detect whether a server role or feature is installed, use the Server Feature WMI provider.

    Subsequent releases of Windows will map the product types it supports to the set of product types supported by each supported previous release of Windows, back to version 6.0.0.0. Therefore, an application that does an equality test for any of these values will continue to work on future releases, even when new product types are added.

    PRODUCT_*_SERVER_CORE values are not returned in Windows Server 2012. For example, the base server edition, Server Datacenter, is used to build the two different installation options: "full server" and "core server". With Windows Server 2012, GetProductInfo will return PRODUCT_DATACENTER regardless of the option used during product installation.

    The following table indicates the product types that were introduced in 6.1.0.0, and what they will map to if GetProductInfo is called with version 6.0.0.0 on a 6.1.0.0 system.

    @mm1352000 i don't want to use WMI as it takes always too long (we don't want to wait 2 seconds just to get exact version of windows product type, do we?). Moreover, if those Product IDs can be returned from that function, why the descriptions are wrong? :)
    Don't worry, i already corrected descriptions in the code, i just don't have latest version of code here to post it here for testing (gonna do it tonight).
    It is just sometimes frustrating that documentation on MSDN get half-updated (they have inserted new product types, but haven't updated descriptions for existing ones).
    P.S. it is also funny that this WMI object they recommend to use is marked as deprecated :)

    I'll wait for your new version and post the result together with a copy of my SysInfo screen.
