Not 100% sure but it should be possible to query it from the registry -

exec master..xp_regread 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE', 'SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OLAP Server\CurrentVersion', 'VersionNum'

If you need the information for the dll, if you can do a manual search in the registry, then using the root, key and valuename parameters with xp_regread should give you the value

Try this -

master..xp_regread 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT', 'MSOLAP\CurVer', '(Default)'

It should actually be -

master..xp_regread 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT', 'MSOLAP\CurVer', NULL

If there are multiple OLAP versions, the above will give you the most recent version (The CurVer key will only exist if there are multiple versions)

If that doesn't return any values (or an error), then you will just have run a set of commands and use the return value 'KeyExist' to determine the applicable version -

exec master..xp_regread 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT', 'MSOLAP.4'
exec master..xp_regread 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT', 'MSOLAP.3'
exec master..xp_regread 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT', 'MSOLAP.2'
exec master..xp_regread 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT', 'MSOLAP'
