    Is there a quick way to assess the Service Pack level of a number of Win2K PC's? For example: Is there a registry item that would indicate what service pack is installed on a particular computer?
    Thanks,

    Right click My Computer. Select Properties. The System Properties Box will open with the General Tab default page. The version of the Service Pack is listed there.

    Hmmm. Yes, I could do that, but I would need to look at several PC's in several areas of 3 buildings and would perfer to check them from a single location.
    If there's a way to check the reg for the SP level, I could open the registries remotely and verify the SP right from my desk. OK, so I'm a little lazy, but there's got to be an easy way, right?
    I have used scripts to detect the OS of a PC and then used IF statements to make registry changes for NT, 2K, and XP machines. I need to do something similar but also need to know the SP that the machine is running.
    Thank you,
    Dougget

    There are a slew of references in the registry to the current service pack. I have attached an export of the primary key in W2K. I haven't opened my XP registry, but I expect the same key or close to it is there also.
