HOW TO know the SQL Server version installed

There are different methods how to know the SQL Server version installed.

My preferred, for me the easiest to remember, is run the following query:

[sourcecode lang=”sql”]Select @@version[/sourcecode]

An example of the output of this query is as follows:

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64)   Mar 29 2009 10:11:52   Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation  Express Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1  (Build 7600: )

For further info, please, use the reference link.
