Sharepoint 2010

I wills start this by stating I know very little about sharepoint.  However, I have a client that has sharepoint, I believe version 2010 because when I click on start - programs - I have a program group called Microsoft SharePoint 2010.

I was contacted that they could no longer add data to the server.  We looked into it and after some research saw that they were running SQL 2008r2 Express that has a 10gb database limitation.  There database has reached that limit.  So, it looks like I have to go to SQL Full Version.  Correct me if I am wrong.

If I am right, I looked at SQL 2008r2 standard with 10 clients and it is about $2k.  This is a non profit that doesn't have a lot of money.  They can utilize a site called tech soup and get deals on software but they only have SQL 2012.

So, my questions are:

1.  Is there a better way to figure out what version of sharepoint I am running?
2.  If SharePoint 2010, will it support SQL 2012?
3.  Do I need a client access license for each user accessing sharepoint?
4.  If 2012 will work, will an install auto upgrade the 2008r2 express version?
5.  If 2012 will work, does it come in 32 bit and 64bit and if so, what version would I need?

Thanks for any help in advance.

1. Open Central Admin.  If the home page has icons on it, you are on 2010.  If you only see text, it's 2007.

2. Yes if SP1 is installed

3. Yes

4. It should, as long as the current server is 64 bit

5. 64

2. I'm talkinga bout SP1 for SharePoint.

No, they aren't the same thing.  SharePoint Foundation is the base, and is free.  SharePoint Server is built on top of Foundation, but includes more features and isn't free.

One final question - Is there a way to tell between foundation and server?  Regardless of the version I have can it see updates via windows updates or do I need to install SP1 via a direct download?

Central Admin - System Settings - Servers in Farm.  This will show you the product installed.

SP1 is a direct download.  Install Foundation SP1 first, then Server SP1 (if you have the Server version).  After SP1 is installed, you need to install a CU.  The latest is here:  http://blogs.technet.com/b/stefan_gossner/archive/2013/06/12/june-2013-cu-for-sharepoint-2010-has-been-released.aspx
