FAQ
Hey Oliver,

I finally got around to working on this today, and discovered I fixed it
long ago and completely forgot to push the change to github. oops :)

Looks like I took a different approach.

https://github.com/adenning/winfacts/blob/master/lib/facter/os_architecture.rb

I only run Puppet on Windows 7 and XP nodes (yeah that's right), but I can
confirm this handles 32-bit OS on x64 and accounts for some variations I
ran into with various embedded Windows.

Hi Adam,

The class Win32_OperatingSystem<http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394239%28VS.85%29.aspx>exists on Vista and above. For older systems you can use
Win32_ComputerSystem<http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394102%28VS.85%29.aspx>.
I found this information here:

The following minor change did the trick for windows 2003.

Facter.add(:os_architecture) do
confine :operatingsystem => :windows
setcode do
result = ''
require 'win32ole'
wmi = WIN32OLE.connect('winmgmts://./root/CIMV2')
winver = Facter.value('kernelmajversion')
case winver
when /5.2|5.1|5.0/
query = wmi.ExecQuery('select SystemType from
Win32_ComputerSystem')
query.each do |os|
result = os.SystemType
break
end
if result == "X86-based PC"
result = "32-bit"
else
result = "64-bit"
end
result
else
query = wmi.ExecQuery('select OSArchitecture from
Win32_OperatingSystem')
query.each do |os|
result = os.OSArchitecture
break
end
result
end
end
end

Have a nice weekend.

on our machines. But it looks like it is not workung under Windows 2003
32Bit.I have to check this...
