Some versions of MS-DOS support an undocumented /r switch, which will show the revision as well as the version. The command is also available in the open source MS-DOS emulator DOSBox.

Microsoft Windows also includes a GUI variant of the command called winver, which shows the Service Pack installed (if any) as well as the version.

Windows also includes the setver command that is used to set the version number that the MS-DOS subsystem (NTVDM) reports to a DOS program.
