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 :)

Windows 7 Enterprise (Build# 7600) x64

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.
