Need to know which version of SQL

   I have a customer who kind of got the shaft by their software vendor. They need to upgrade to SQL Server 2019 but they aren't sure which SQL they currently have. Can anyone tell from this:

I would have to assume you mean from within SQL somehow but you didn't supply enough detail to accomplish the task.....

So I can, without a doubt, tell her it is 2014 and not 2014 Express?

LOL! I see Express in the servername which was manually set at the initial installation years ago. That is the only place I see the work Express. Even add/remove programs does not mention the word Express. I need to be able to tell her with 100% certainty which version she has.........

Ryan's query will give you all the info.
Naming SQL as SQLExpress while is another edition would be a world first.... :)

Let's try this again. I don't want to know how to upgrade her. That really isn't the question. The question is "What version of SQL is she running"? Your initial comment was "Is right there in the screenshot 12.0.2000 = 2014 " but very soon after it was countermanded with 2014 Express. So what version is she running? 2014 or 2014 Express?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Wow, I've marked one comment or incorrectly marked solution as "Not helpful" and now everything seems to be OK. Thanks!  OTOH, I did not expect it will cause such a storm.
