Details

Unlike previous versions of Microsoft Windows, Windows 10 can be installed on a computer with different Build Versions.  When installing other software on the computer, such as Wonderware System Platform 2017, there may be a dependency on particular Build Versions.

To check what build of Windows 10 is installed on your computer go to the Start menu, or press Win+R, and type in "winver".  This will display the About Windows display.

 

In this display, your Version of Windows 10 will be displayed.  In the example above, Build Version 1607 is installed.
