How do you tell if you have Windows 2003 standard R2 installed?

I have installed Windows Server 2003 64bit R2 SP2 on a server. I cannot verify that it is running R2. Where do I go to verify this install?

1.There are also some other ways,

To make sure you know which version is on your computer:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the box, type winver, and then click OK.

The window that appears will show you which version of Windows your computer is using. If your operating system has a service pack installed, you will see the service pack listed as shown in the following image

2.Ref the link for screenshots,

At the login screen, the header logo will state Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition R2 if you do indeed have the R2 edition installed.

You can also view the information in the 'System' area of Control Panel.

I have downloaded the R2 version from Microsoft, but Properties doesn't show it as R2. I can find .dll files that refer to R2, but I have to prove to my boss it really is R2. Should the logon screen say R2?

I do not believe I have installed the Service packs for R2 yet. Will this tell me I can't if it is NOT R2?
