From powershell on the host run the following command:

Get-VM | Format-Table Name, IntegrationServicesVersion
Cliff GaliherCommented:
The host doesn't run integration services.
Tyler BrooksNetwork and Security ConsultantCommented:
No but that command will retrieve the integration services version from the VM's being hosted.

Right click for properties on c:\windows\system32\vmms.exe and goto details tab.
Is that what you are looking for under 'file version'?

Cliff GaliherCommented:
vmms.exe is the virtual machine management service and handles all VMs, including VMs without integration services.

As for the OPs original question, the OP stressed the HOST (capitalization theirs) and I reiterate my answer. The host/management OS does not run integration services. That is a guest technology to improve some functions where the guest cannot directly access hardware (CMOS clock, NIC drivers, etc.) The host has that access and so does not need or have use of IS.

I was thinking about this question twice and figured the asker knotws about the get-vm to check which version is running on VMS but also would like to check somehow a newer version is available for installing.
By comparing fileversion from vmms.exe with output given from get-vm he can trigger Some response.

The command

Get-VM | Format-Table Name, IntegrationServicesVersion

Open in new window

is for view the is installed on vm.

But if i want to know what version i have on my host? I think there is a respository for is installer file on host or something similar.

One method I found on web is from regedit

Anyone know other methods?
Tyler BrooksNetwork and Security ConsultantCommented:
As Cliff pointed out above Integration services doesn't run on the host. You would want to check the VMMS version as mentioned by Patrick to check which version of that is running.

Hi guys,
in regedit of HOST
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Windows NT\Virtualization\GuestInstaller\Version
I have this version
In vmms of HOST I have this version
MS site show me this versions of IS
I think there no association with vmms and SI, because the version are different, but in regedit i have correct versiioning.
