Service packs are the means by which Microsoft Windows product updates are distributed. Service packs keep the product current, and extend and update the functionality of your computer. Service packs include updates, system administration tools, drivers, and additional components. All are conveniently bundled so that you can easily download them. Service packs are cumulative. This means that each new service pack contains all the fixes in previous service packs, and any new fixes.
There are two methods to determine which Microsoft Windows Service Pack is installed on an individual Cisco ICM system. Choose the method that best suits you.
Complete these steps:
From a command prompt or from the Run dialog box, type winver, and press ENTER.Figure 1 – The winver Command
Based on the version of Microsoft Windows installed, either the About Windows NT dialog box (Figure 2) or the About Windows dialog box (Figure 3) appears. The dialog box shows the version, build, and Service Pack installed.Figure 2 – Microsoft Windows NT
Complete these steps:
In a command prompt or in the Run dialog box, type winmsd, and press ENTER.Figure 4 – The winmsd Command
For Microsoft Windows NT, the Diagnostics dialog box appears:Figure 5 – Windows NT Diagnostics Dialog Box
Click the Version tab. This tab displays information about the Service Pack version installed.
In the example in Figure 5, Service Pack 5 is installed.
For Microsoft Windows 2000, the System Information dialog box appears:Figure 6 – System Information Dialog Box
The System Summary folder is the default folder that appears. See the Version item for the latest Service Pack version installed.
You must keep up with the latest Microsoft Windows NT Service Pack, but even more importantly, use the correct Service Pack with the version of Cisco ICM. In order to determine the correct Service Pack for your system, see the Bill of Materials.
When you have determined the correct Service Pack for your Cisco ICM node, you can obtain it from the Microsoft Service Pack Download Center .
