Or... Go to Settings --> Control Panel --> Add / Remove Program

You should be able to see what is installed including Microsoft Office

Hello whiwex =)

I think infotrader is correct abt the Add Remove Programs checking...... and if u want to confirm it by Registry checking, look here the Second method >> http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=295369

!! GOOD LUCK !!

Not wanting to get into the middle of anything here, but you might want to try Belarc Advisor.

http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

It will give you the versions of all your software, ...and lots, lots more. It's very cool!

An even better inventory tool (much better than Belarc) is the Aida32 program, recently bought out by Snapfiles.  It is still free for home use though..

yes

I would agree with both
Info trader and sheryaar sahil . butthere is one more method. It is the simplest one.
Go to "Start" then to "Programs" . Here you can view the list of all programs you have installed.
 
Gd luck

Yes, but not the version number...  this does not show up in the Program Menus..

What about looking at the disc(s) used for installation.
Or the box the disc came in.
Or documentation that came with it.

Or you can roll some chicken bones and let the gods tell you what version you have...

In XP, if you go to Add and Remove Programs, then select the program, in most cases there is a link that says "click for support" or "click for more information." That will often give you the version number. On my computer I have both XP Pro Office and Office 97 Pro installed (Access only).

Add and remove programs does tell you it's Pro. Standard and Business would probably report the same way.

I don't believe that whivex asked about version number...

Just open the required program you want and then go to Help menu . There is  something called"About" click on it and it will tell you the version of the program you use along with all the copyrights

That's true, but it doesn't really tell you if you own Microsoft Office Standard, Pro, or Premium, or whatever it is you have.
