For VB 6.0:

Add the sysinfo ocx to your project:

Project > Components > "Microsoft SysInfo Control"

You should now have an icon for the control in your toolbox.

Drop one on a form and you can then use it in code.

Example of how it can be used:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.    MsgBox form1.SysInfo1.OSBuild     
  2.    MsgBox form1.SysInfo1.OSPlatform
  3.    MsgBox form1.SysInfo1.OSVersion
