Hello,

I have a 64bit template vm created for windows server 2008.  I can't remember if it is R2 or not.  Would that show up in the system properties screen?

How can I tell if I am running R2?

Start > Run > winver

The screen / logo will say if it is R2 or not.  If it doesn't say R2, you're not.

star "winver" from the run menu or the commandline.there is written 2008 R2 if it is an R2 server.
