Symptom

Microsoft Operating Systems  

Windows Version Identification

To determine the version of Windows that you are running, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type winver.exe, and then click OK. The version number is displayed in the About Windows box.

International Version Identification

To determine the language version of Windows that you are using, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Search.
  2. Click All files and folders.
  3. In the All or part of the file name box, type winver.exe, and then click Search.
  4. When the file is located, right-click it, and then click Properties.
  5. Click the Version tab.
  6. Under Item name, click Language.

    The language version information is displayed under Value.

Microsoft Internet Explorer

To determine the version of Internet Explorer, click About Internet Explorer on the Help menu or press Alt + H and then press A.

Microsoft Office solutions

In the About Microsoft Product name dialog box, a number appears after the product name. For example, in Microsoft Excel 2002, you might see the following number: (10.2614.2625). To locate the About Microsoft Product name dialog box, click About Microsoft Program on the Help menu in any Office program.

How to understand the version number

Microsoft Office products use the following syntax for the version number in the About dialog box: aa.bbbb.cccc
This number represents three items:
  • aa: The version of Office.
  • bbbb: The version of the program executable file. For example, the Excel.exe file.
  • cccc: The version of the Mso.dll file.

Important

  • When you install a service pack, the version that is displayed in the About Microsoft Program name dialog box adds the letters "SP" and the number of the service pack level. How these letters appear depends on the version of the Mso.dll file.
  • You may apply a hotfix or a public update that contains fixes that are provided in the latest service pack and that updates the Mso.dll file. In this case, the version of the Mso.dll file that is displayed in the About Microsoft Program name dialog box adds the letters "SP" and the number of the service pack level. This occurs even if that service pack is not installed.
