Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets the service pack version represented by this OperatingSystem object.

public string ServicePack { get; }
/** @property */

public function get ServicePack () : String

Property Value

The service pack version, if service packs are supported and at least one is installed; otherwise, an empty string ("").

A service pack is used to distribute software updates for the operating system on which it is installed. However, not every operating system uses service packs.

The service pack version, if available, is already correctly formatted for display.

The following code example demonstrates the ServicePack property.

    Console.WriteLine("Service pack version = \"{0}\"", sp);
    }
}
/*
