SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In SharePoint 2007, we have a registry entry HKLM/Microsoft/OfficeServer/12.0/OfficeServerPremium=1 for enterprise edition and OfficeServerPremium=0 for standard edition.

How can I determine which edition of SharePoint 2010 is installed on a machine?

See the article How To: Detect the Installed SKU of SharePoint 2010 on MSDN. It has a list of GUIDs for each SKU:

  • BEED1F75-C398-4447-AEF1-E66E1F0DF91E: SharePoint Foundation 2010
  • 1328E89E-7EC8-4F7E-809E-7E945796E511: Search Server Express 2010
  • B2C0B444-3914-4ACB-A0B8-7CF50A8F7AA0: SharePoint Server 2010 Standard Trial
  • 3FDFBCC8-B3E4-4482-91FA-122C6432805C: SharePoint Server 2010 Standard
  • 88BED06D-8C6B-4E62-AB01-546D6005FE97: SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Trial
  • D5595F62-449B-4061-B0B2-0CBAD410BB51: SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise
  • BC4C1C97-9013-4033-A0DD-9DC9E6D6C887: Search Server 2010 Trial
  • 08460AA2-A176-442C-BDCA-26928704D80B: Search Server 2010
  • 84902853-59F6-4B20-BC7C-DE4F419FEFAD: Project Server 2010 Trial
  • ED21638F-97FF-4A65-AD9B-6889B93065E2: Project Server 2010
  • 926E4E17-087B-47D1-8BD7-91A394BC6196: Office Web Companions 2010

You can look for these within the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS\InstalledProducts.

You can also use the PowerShell command get-spfarm | select Products to output GUIDs for the installed SKUs.

If you have SharePoint Server 2010 Standard, does the SharePoint Foundation GUID always get returned as well? –  TempaC Mar 20 '13 at 10:05

@TempaC SharePoint Foundation is the foundation to SharePoint Server, so yes it is included as an installed product. –  shufler Mar 21 '13 at 17:45

You can follow this guide to identify all versions of SharePoint:

http://www.sharepointdesignerstepbystep.com/Blog/Articles/How%20To%20find%20the%20SharePoint%20version.aspx

In 2010, you can also specifically visit the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration Web site, then 'Upgrade and Migration', then 'Check product and patch installation status' to show version numbers and what components are installed on what servers.
