    Hi folks,

    I'd like to ask a favor from a Win 8.1 user since I don't have it installed.

    I've been developing some apps with AutoHotkey (http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/software/56322-apps-tablet-pc.html) and I would like to know how AutoHotkey recognizes Win 8.1.

    Could anyone download the zip file from the link below (it's uploaded on MediaFire.com) and run the exe that's inside? When you run it, it should just show a message box that says what version of Windows you have (for example, for Win 7 it says either WIN_7 or WIN_VISTA). Could anyone tell me what it says for Win 8.1 (does it just say WIN_8)?

    Thanks a lot!

    Here's the link:
    Win_Version.zip

    Hi will567,

    Thanks for your reply, that's very helpful.

    One last thing: Could you (or someone else) try the other version in the zip file below? I think it should report something different.

    Thanks again!
