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

mlmccCommented:
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?

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
