How To: Detect the Installed SKU of SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010

Last modified: April 19, 2011

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

If the behavior of your custom application depends on the installed SKU of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, you can determine which SKU of SharePoint Server 2010 is installed locally by using the code sample in this topic.

The following code sample demonstrates how to retrieve the registry key of the installed SKU of SharePoint Server 2010 and of other Microsoft Office server products, and how to match the SKU with a hash table that stores the names and keys for all of the known SKUs of these products. The console output displays the name of the installed SKU.

using System;
using System.Collections;
using Microsoft.Win32;


namespace GetInstalledSharePointSku
{
    class Program
    {
        internal static Hashtable _products;

        public static Hashtable SharePointProducts
        {
            get 
            {
                if (_products == null)
                {
                    _products = new Hashtable();
