Run dxdiag and see your Windows version there.

It's to do with a change in Windows 10, you can no longer query the version without having UAC elevation and authorization and certification from Microsoft. Everything else gets Windows 8.1 reported to it as the Windows version.

Nothing we can do about it Tongue

Just made a patch for windows 10 detection on the log file, could be identified by the minimum and maximum OS version variables given at Microsoft.

Does reading from the registry need admin privileges?
If not,the key that has the info is the same on all windows versions
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

Here's an Orphis build with <supportedOS> added to the manifest.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<compatibility xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:compatibility.v1">
<application>
    <!-- Windows Vista -->
    <supportedOS Id="{e2011457-1546-43c5-a5fe-008deee3d3f0}"/>
    <!-- Windows 7 -->
    <supportedOS Id="{35138b9a-5d96-4fbd-8e2d-a2440225f93a}"/>
    <!-- Windows 8 -->
    <supportedOS Id="{4a2f28e3-53b9-4441-ba9c-d69d4a4a6e38}"/>
    <!-- Windows 8.1 -->
    <supportedOS Id="{1f676c76-80e1-4239-95bb-83d0f6d0da78}"/>
    <!-- Windows 10 -->
    <supportedOS Id="{8e0f7a12-bfb3-4fe8-b9a5-48fd50a15a9a}"/>
</application>
</compatibility>
</assembly>

To any interested developer save that to a .manifest file and add to project.
