How to determine the installed version and build number for Configuration Manager

There often comes the time you need to find out the Configuration Manager  version. You will need to find the build number, version and CU level.

What is build and version ?

The build number in 5.00.8239.1000 is 8239

The version  in 5.00.8239.1000 is 1000.
If you want to find the console version you need to go on the left upper corner  blue arrow in the console and check About

version about1

version about

Site version can be checked like this

Check the Site Version from site properties: Go to Administration -> Site Configuration -> Sites, then right-click the site and select Properties.

version site

The steps above can also be achieved by running the following SQL query

As you might have noticed, the current CU level is missing.

To check the actual version  (site version+ current CU level) can be checked in the registry:Check the version in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Setup\CULevel
