You might think that Lingo's
command would tell you whether you are running under Windows 3.1, Windows
95 or Windows NT! Surprise, it only tells you what type of PROJECTOR is
The platform doesn't distinguish between a 16-bit
projector running under Windows 3.1 versus the same projector running under
Windows 95. Nor does it distinguish between a 32-bit projector running under
Window 95 or Windows NT.
zWinVer returns the true name of the OS, regardless of the projector type.
