  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11

This article was previously published under Q106271


When WINVER.EXE is executed from within Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11, it reports "386 Enhanced Mode Windows Version 3.10," but when executed from an MS-DOS Prompt or outside of Windows, it reports "Windows for Workgroups Version 3.11."


When executed from within Windows, WINVER.EXE does a "GetVersion" API call, which returns version 3.10 from the kernel. The version that the kernel reports was not changed for this version of Windows for Workgroups.

Additional query words: 3.11
