Windows 7: Adobe detects W7 as Windows NT

08 Apr 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC 7100 32bit/64bit
Adobe detects W7 as Windows NT

If you go to and click on the button Download Adobe Reader, instead of taking you to Adobe 9 Download page, Adobe will take you to Adobe 7 download page for Windows NT!

It appears adobe is unaware yet that a new OS has been released, or it's not that dynamic as expected to detect a 6.x OS as Vista compatible

You need to manually select OS as Vista , in order to get the latest software version.

This happened to me only in adobe's site . Most of the sites with auto-OS detection detected W7 as Vista or worst, XP.

But NT??? come on!

Anyways, this happened with Build 7068.

Check it out to verify

tis is due to the fact that they haven't bothered to update the strings in the check routine, as it probably looks for one of like, 5 things
'windows 9x' 'xp' 'vista' '2000' or 'NT', since the only thing in the os strings from w7 that match is the NT part, well.. ^_^

it's part of the javascript or whatever on the adobe site, so till they update it (most likely not till 7 hits rtm) it'll keep doing that.
