SQL Versions

I am kind of confused when I try to find the version of SQL server

I believe I need to check the properties of the instances instead of the "About" page of the of the Management Studio.

in the screenshots below I wonder if I am using sQL Server 2008 or SQL Express.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Your running Express. The topline of the first screen shot indicates that.

10.50.2500.0 Tells us you are running 2008 R2 SP1.

So you have SQL Express 2008 R2 SP1 installed.

As indicated previously you have SQL Server 2008-R2 Express Edition installed and you are using SSMS version 2008 (not 2008-R2).

You can.  It is just easier to query it from SSMS.

the first screenshot I pasted was after I opened up SSMS the right-clicked on the instance name then properties….That's where It shows "Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition (64bits)"
