GetProcessVersion info  Overview  Group

The GetProcessVersion function obtains the major and minor version numbers of the Windows version on which a specified process expects to run.

DWORD GetProcessVersion(

    DWORD ProcessId

// identifier specifying the process of interest



Process identifier that specifies the process of interest. A ProcessId value of zero specifies the calling process.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is the version of Windows on which the process expects to run. The high word of the return value contains the major version number. The low word of the return value contains the minor version number.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError. The function fails if ProcessId is an invalid value.


The GetProcessVersion function performs less quickly when ProcessId is nonzero, specifying a process other than the calling process.

The version number returned by this function is the version number stamped in the image header of the .EXE file the process is running. Linker programs set this value.
