"About" indicating incorrect OS version?


#1

The Brave version info displays this:

os.platform: win32
os.release: 10.0.14393
os.arch: x64

Note the win32… however, this system is definitely running Win 10 64-bit. What’s up with this? I ask because if you’ve got that wrong, it’s possible that you’re getting incorrect statistics…

@Alphageek that is correct- you are on Win64 and if you look at the os.arch field it should say x64, signifying how it’s 64 bit.

The win32 part comes from node.js:
https://nodejs.org/api/os.html#os_os_platform

We should be showing simply “Microsoft Windows”, not “win32”. I’ve captured an issue on GitHub which you can use to track.

Hopefully, we can get this fixed up soon :slight_smile: Apologies for the confusion

Thanks!
