How to determine which version of SQL Server 2005 is running

To determine which version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 is running, connect to SQL Server 2005 by using SQL Server Management Studio, and then run the following Transact-SQL statement.

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')

The following results are returned:

  • The product version (for example, 9.00.1399.06)
  • The product level (for example, RTM)
  • The edition (for example, Enterprise Edition)

For example, the results resemble the following.

 Collapse this table Expand this table
9.00.1399.06 RTM Enterprise Edition

The following table lists the Sqlservr.exe version number.
