All I am trying to find out the version of TFS that we have installed in our environment. This installation took place before TFS was released and we have since puchased the software and now I need to get it upgraded.

How do I tell the version of TFS I know one way is suppose to be able to tell by the version of the Microsoft.TeamFoundation.dll which in our case is 8.0.50727.147 wich from the documentation does not match the RC1 or the Beta3 numbers.

Any help would be greatly apriceated!

Thanks!

An easy way for checking the client's version is to go to Help/About, and click on "Visual Studio 2005 Team Explorer " in "Installed Products" list box. It'll list the version number below. To check server version http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=603799&SiteID=1 . 8.0.50727.147 is the RTM version of TFS.

Microsoft.TeamFoundation.dll versions:

8.0.50727.43 = Beta 3 Refresh
8.0.50727.127 = RC
8.0.50727.147 = RTM

If you are interested whether you have installed BETA or RTM, you can simply execute the GetTFSVersion stored procedure in the TFSIntegration database.

Also, I just recenlty put together a simple console-based utility that will retrieve the TFS version for the TFS application tier. You can read more about it here if you're interested.
