Since there have been many versions of Windows in the past couple of years, the current reporting mechanism offers “Unknown Windows” more often than desired.

I spent many hours trying to find an updated compiled executable and finally gave up. I have read through the few news groups of speculated source changes. I am not a programmer, however, I made a change to the source code similar to those proposed source changes by adding a few lines of code and removing a line of code to tree.c. Then recompiled the executable analog.exe. After many tests, below are screenshots of the result of those efforts.

The change is Unknown Windows now reflects Windows Vista. I changed the version number to 6.1.

After I got the hang of this, I tweaked the code further to include other variations of Windows. I used different log files, hence the different results.
