Hello group,

Is there any way to compare service packs between two different machines? (OS: Windows XP ) The problem I'm having is that I've written an application which works on my machine but on a new machine it complains for some weired error which I don't see on my own. I believe there must be something updated on my machine that the other doesn't have.


Regards,
ak

look at the download links.

The syscompare tool rocks for comparing virtually anything between machines.  It can even compare the same machine over time.

MSInfo32 will tell you the build number and Service Pack
also look in Control Panel, Add Remove Programs to see which hotfixes have been applied

Or you could post more specifics about the exact error you're getting on the machine where the application doesn't work.
