    Hi


    How do I discover if, on my computer, I have the Retail or VL version of Windows 8.1 Update?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Just remember to take the word "type" of the command line argument.

    After cmd>slmgr.vbs /dli

    Or, cmd>slmgr.vbs /dlv

    right, might be a little misleading but assumed a long year member should know about it :D

    To me it looks like OP wants to determine whether a Retail (multiple-edition) or the Pro_VL ISO was used :g:.

    Code:
    dism /online /get-targeteditions
    The Pro_VL version will show no target editions, where the Retail shows ProfessionalWMC :cool2:.

    That's what I got on Win 8.1.1. Enterprise

    Maybe if 77 took those dark glasses off he could see what he was typing - bad dog.
