    10 Pro

    Get-WmiObject works (it always returns "XP" or "7" or "8" or "10")

    Looking at that specific reg key obviously gives the wrong answer ("6.3" for a clean install of 10 pro).

    I think I'd go for something that gave the correct rather than the wrong answer (unless there is some special programmer logic going on here that I don't understand).

    edit, I am a programmer - just not a very good one.

    Yes, yes, that's one devilishly good idea.

    I think perhaps you missed the "I'm not a very good programmer " bit....

    No, I didn't. I was and still am totally aware of it.

    Windows 10 Home 64 bit

    Some software will still report it is running on 8 or 8.1. It's nothing to worry about if everything works. They just need to update their programs.
