Hi,

 

is there any tool that give me information about my used Alteryx-Plattform.

 

I want to know: run my macro on a Designer or on a Alteryx-Server plattform.

 

This information I want to read out and work in my macro within.

 

Best regards

Mathias

Hi @mathias_schnoor 

 

As mentioned in this post, you can run this command in a formula tool

 

 

 

IF Contains(ReadRegistryString('HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion', 'ProductName'),"Server") Then "Server" Else "Desktop" Endif

 

 

 

This should return the correct answer except for the rare case when you're running in the Designer that's installed by default on every Alteryx server
