What SharePoint Version Am I Using?

How to determine if you are using SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013, or 2016

SharePoint Tips & TricksWhat may seem obvious is actually more difficult to determine than you’d expect. Finding your version will depend on what operating system SharePoint is installed on and what build you are running, plus they all store the version information in separate places.

There are three places you can check for the version number: Control Panel Program and Features or Add and Remove Programs, Central Administration, or PowerShell.

Not all of these will work depending on the SharePoint build, but one will certainly work for your environment.

Most of these examples will get you a build number and that build number will have to be looked up.  At the bottom of the article is a list of build numbers and what version and patch level they relate to.

What version of Microsoft SharePoint 2007 you are running? MOSS or WSS?

Microsoft SharePoint 2007 comes in two main version MOSS or WSS3.0 (Microsoft Office SharePoint Server or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0), and there are two versions of MOSS: SharePoint Standard and SharePoint Enterprise.

Using Windows Server 2008 Programs and Features: On Windows Server 2008, go to Control Panel and click Programs and Features.  On the left side, select View Installed Updates.

Using Windows Server 2003 Add/Remove Programs: On Windows Server 2003, go to Control Panel then click Add or Remove Programs and check Show Updates.

Using Central Administration to Find Your SharePoint Version

Go to Central Administration and click Site Actions then click Site Settings. In the Site Information box is the version, take that and look up what patch level you are at (found at the bottom of this article).

Are You Using the Standard or Enterprise version of MOSS?

Go to the Central Administration and click Operations then click Enable Enterprise Features. For Enterprise edition, the radio button will be disabled, otherwise it is Standard edition. This version pictured below is Enterprise.  This is another roundabout way of telling if you have MOSS or WSS3.0 because WSS3.0 will not have the Enable Enterprise Feature under the Operations category.

Are You Running SharePoint 2010 Version, 2013, or 2016?

Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013 versions come in two main flavors: Microsoft SharePoint Server and Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Both have similar ways of determining what version you’re running. The easiest way to determine what version you have is to access to the server. From the server, you can use Central Administration’s Check Product and Patch Installation Status or the PowerShell.

Using the Central Administration Method:

Go to Central Administration and click Upgrade and Migration then click Check Product and Patch installation Status.

Microsoft discontinued Foundation in SharePoint 2016 version, but using the same Central Administration method as shown above works for SharePoint Server 2016.

Using the PowerShell Method:

This command works in SharePoint 2013, 2010, and 2016.  You will need to run this in the SharePoint Management PowerShell:
(get-spfarm).BuildVersion

SharePoint Management PowerShell

You will need to take the value it returns and look up what it returns and match it with the numbers found below (I recommend just hitting CTL F and copy/pasting your number in to find it faster):

    hi Matt,
    i saw your blog and i also went to couple others, I am a new sharepoint shelf learner. At my work we have sharepoint 3.0 In development we have verstion 12.0.0.6520. and i wanted to update that to version 12.0.0.6565.
    The long story short, our production sharepoint version is 12.0.0.6565 and a customer mistakenly deleted a sub site which i was trying to recover on development to test it but since the version is different its not letting me us the content database.
    Any help on this appreciated.
    Thank you !!!
    Hina

    run away from sharepoint while you can. if you don’t, it will drain the life out of you. it’s one of the worst stuff microsoft ever made. specially if you are developing for it. microsoft never used or developed stuff for it and it shows.
