Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public string ServicePack { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

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.
