Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-794) SystemUtils.IS_OS_WINDOWS_2008, VISTA are incorrect
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2015 22:32:53 GMT


Timo Kockert commented on LANG-794:

I agree with [~bayard], on Windows commons-lang should use the value of to determine
the version. Take a look at
for possible values.

>                 Key: LANG-794
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons Lang
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: lang.*
>    Affects Versions: 3.1
>         Environment: Windows Server 2008 R2, Rackspace Cloud Instance
>            Reporter: Tyler Hobbs
>             Fix For: Patch Needed
> On Windows Server 2008 R2 (a Rackspace Cloud Instance), the values of SystemUtils.IS_OS_WINDOWS_2008
and SystemUtils.IS_OS_WINDOWS_VISTA are incorrect: the former is false and the latter is true.
> I'm not sure how to fix the VISTA flag (as I don't have an instance to test against),
but the cause of WINDOWS_2008 being set to false is that the match explicitly requires the
version to be 6.1, where 6.0 can apparently also be the version number for 2008 R2.
