Winver.exe just displays information from elsewhere, anyway. You can take the Winver.exe from Windows 3.1 and run it in Windows 7 (or 8!) 32-bit and it'll show the version information for the OS it's in.

I modified the Winver from Windows for Workgroups (to "Windoze for Warehouses"), but Winver picks up a lot of stuff from other places. Try running winver in a different OS, and see what changes. This will tell you if you are looking at the right thing!
