    Anybody has any idea why the GetVersionEx API reports 6.2.9200 on Windows 8.1 Preview?

    C:\>getversionex.exe
    6.2.9200 N/A Build 9200

    C:\>systeminfo

    Host Name: WIN-QJNHK7TGRV7
    OS Name: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter Preview
    OS Version: 6.3.9431 N/A Build 9431

    I've noticed the same behavior when trying to do version limitation. Dunno what they are thinking.
    Had to go registry way!
