App-V : Updated OS VALUE XML Tag References

Recently I run in to this issue App-v apps with the wrong OS tag value how to change this is easy edit the OSD file and your done. but what if you have multiple apps ? or you don’t know what value you need.
Below is a List of supported OSD Tags. as in app-v 4.6 sp1 the second part is for SP2 currently a beta.
Target OS OSD Tag Value Minimal App-V Client
Windows NT <OS VALUE="WinNT"/> 4.1
Windows 2000 <OS VALUE="Win2K"/> 4.1
Windows 2000 Server <OS VALUE="Win2KSvr"/> 4.1
Windows 2000 Terminal Server <OS VALUE="Win2KTS"/> 4.1
Windows XP <OS VALUE="WinXP"/> 4.1
Windows XP x64 <OS VALUE="WinXP64"/> 4.6 x64
Windows Server 2003 <OS VALUE="Win2003Svr"/> 4.1
Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server <OS VALUE="Win2003TS"/> 4.1
Windows 2003 Terminal Server x64 <OS VALUE="Win2003TS64"/> 4.6 x64
Windows Vista <OS VALUE="WinVista"/> 4.2
Windows Vista x64 <OS VALUE="WinVista64"/> 4.6 x64
Windows 2008 Terminal Server <OS VALUE="Win2008TS"/> 4.5
Windows 2008 Terminal Server x64 <OS VALUE="Win2008TS64"/> 4.6 x64
Windows 7 <OS VALUE="Win7"/> 4.5 sp1
Windows 7 x64 <OS VALUE="Win764"/> 4.6 x64
Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server x64 <OS VALUE="Win2008R2TS64"/> 4.6 x64

As you can see windows 2012 is currently not in the list. Therefor you need to use the SP2 version.
