I think I remember it being in the version #, but I can't remember for sure.
My version number is 9.0.21022.8 RTM

Do I have SP1 installed? Or how else can I tell?

Yeah that's where I'm looking, but it doesn't mention it.  Just says Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and then the version #.  I would normally assume that it isn't installed but I remember something about the version number indicating it...  

Does yours mention SP1 in the help-about?

you can also browse the list of installed products in the help about form and the Service Pack will be listed, likely at the bottom

"on the right hand side of help about where it says Version 3.5 it should also say SP1 if it is installed"

that's .net 3.5, and it's SP level...not VS2008.

Does yours say VS2008 SP1 under installed products?  Can anyone confirm this? Thanks
