According to

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17399302/how-can-i-detect-windows-8-1-in-a-desktop-application

another strategy is to directly read the version out of the registry, from

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
(values CurrentVersion, CurrentBuild)

Not sure where to get service pack information from, though.
