Someone called me recently stating that their SharePoint farm had expired, it was a shock to them because they had installed it with the correct key. Some digging revealed that there was a post-SP2 bug. There’s a hotfix (32-bit / x64) available as well and that sent me down a path of identifying what level of SharePoint I was running. There was a great post by Penny Coventry that I used to refer but it hadn’t been updated. After some more searching and clicking around, I finally found it. Here is the blog post: How to find the level of SharePoint you are running on Penny’s new blog.
