How to tell which service pack is currently installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 SDK installed on my machine.  I opened the "Browse SDK" that was installed in Start>All Programs>Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 SDK>Browse SDK.  When I do this an html window opens with some links on it.  At the bottom is a link called Updates.  If I hover over this link a message comes up under my cursor stating my current version is 2.0.1323.0.  I checked around on the MS site and could not find this version anywhere.  Is there another way that I can check the version of my SDK?  I will need others in the office to install this so that they can run the program I wrote, but I'm not sure which rev of the SDK to have them install.

    Thanks for your assistance.

  • check the version of the assembly that's installed in your sdk directory.

  • Your 'customers' should not need to install the HPC SDK. They should install the HPC Pack 'client utilities' and they'll have everything they need to interact with the cluster / run your app in a supported fashion. 

    Since you are just working on this program now, I'd also suggest that you look in to using HPC Pack 2008 R2.

    The HPC Pack 2008 software was originally released in September of 2008 (v2.0.1551, so you may actually have a beta release isntalled) with the last service pack being SP2 in May of 2010 (v2.2.1841).

    The HPC Pack 2008 R2 software was originally released in July of 2010, with its most recent service pack being SP4 released in June of 2012.
