Incorrect Windows version info: Windows 11 is displayed as Windows 10

Started by Martin

Windows 11 is shown as Windows 10 in the OS column.
And Windows Server 2019 and 2022 are shown as Windows Server 2016.

That scan uses an old API that can't fetch build number. Which means that for anything after Windows 10 it cannot determine what OS it is. Because they all have version 10.0 while the build number is not available in this API.

You can instead use the Windows Name option in Remote WMI, as shown below. It should work correctly for any Windows version.
