Property Value

Type: System..::.String
Returns String.


This property does not return the OS version, which can be retrieved using System..::.Environment. We recommend that the value be a string that can be parsed as a System..::.Version structure and that it be incremented in a logical manner as newer hardware is released, but this is not required. This value may be empty.
