Windows 7 recognized as Windows NT. The Grim Sultan 4/8/09 6:00 PM
Hello,

I use Windows 7 and surf with Chrome. My browser user agent string is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/1.0.154.53 Safari/525.19.

As you can see Windows NT 6.1, so it should show up as Windows 7. When I view my reports, it shows up as Windows NT. Other analytics software do recognize it as Windows 7, so that is more convienent.

Any way to fix this?

Are you sure that 7 shows up at NT? I still have actual NT users visiting my site. Also, XP was NT as well, NT 5.1.

That said, I still can't see Windows 7 showing up in my logs, and I've visited the site myself (using 7).

The user agent string when using Google Chrome on Windows 7:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/1.0.154.65 Safari/525.19

As you can see, "Windows NT 6.1".

Other scripts like Piwik do recognize Windows 7 as Windows 7, and not as Windows NT.

I am sure it doesn't show up in Google Analytics. I use Windows 7 when I visit my site, which shows up as Windows NT.

The same for me, maybe Google will start to recognize Windows 7 correctly when it's officially released to the public on 10/22

it is correct. I've tried by myself and obtain the same result.
Using win 7 and firefox, analytics register that visit as windows NT user. I've check it was really me looking a a specific day; the location, the hour and the network property are correct.
