How to determine the specific version of BES 5.0 in Server 2008

You want to determine what maintenance release you are running for Blackberry Enterprise Server 5.0, but you cannot find the version number in the web console or Add/Remove Programs.  You are running Server 2008.

In 2003, it was fairly easy to determine which Blackberry Enterprise Server you were running by going to Add/Remove programs and click “Click Here for More Information”.  In 2008, it is a little bit different.

This information is included in the release notes for each maintenance release, but it doesn’t get indexed well in search engines.

  1.  Open Control Panel
  2. Go to Programs and Features
  3. Right Click the the column heading and Click More
  4. In the dialog box, select Version
  5. Click OK
