VS.Net 2005 SP1 - How to tell?

I ran into an interesting issue couple of days back... I had VS.Net 2005 reinstalled by my company's IT services.  Now, I wanted to know whether they had installed SP1 or not!  Searched the net and came up dry...

  • Your about box should have the version numbers like the one below [The version before SP1 was 8.0.50727.42]


  • Your HKLM\Software\Microsoft\DevDiv\VS\Servicing\8.0\VSTD\1033 registry key should resemble the one below [See the highlighted keys]
