How can I tell what service pack is installed on a machine?

I thought it was on the Help-About screen in VB 6.0 but it doesn't seem to be there.

thanks

If you have a service pack installed you will see

Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 (SP5)

Service Pack 5 is installed

good luck

It should read "Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0(sp5)" on the first line....
do you have any service packs installed?

It's in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\CSDVersion

You're looking for VB service pack?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\6.0\ServicePacks

Mine shows (SP3) on the top line, right next to Microsoft Visual Basci 6.0

I seem to recall it being blank before I added the SP.

And...

you can also read it on your so-called "splash-window" (the first window at startup of VB).

It is on my personal machine, but the one at the client site doesn't have it.  So I guess they don't have any SPs installed (though they claim to!).

Thanks
