Dear romatlo,

To determine the version of Windows Installer, copy and run this VBScript program

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Dim objInstaller
    Dim strVersion
    Set objInstaller = CreateObject("WindowsInstaller.Installer")
    strVersion = objInstaller.Version
    MsgBox("Installer version is: " & strVersion)

refer this site : http://visualbasic.about.com/library/faq/blfaq0007a.htm

Hope this helps

Cheers!

Search for the file called MSI.DLL.

Right click on that file, choose PROPERTIES.

Find the VERSION tab - look for the version number.

The version should look something like "2.0.2600" or "2.00.2600" etc.

I'm thinking there is a 'Command Prompt' line you can type to return this info.
Will post if I find it.
