What version of BizTalk do I have?

I have seen this question asked several times in the forums and newsgroups so I figured it would be worth posting. I guess it relates more to determining whether you have BizTalk 2006 R1 or BizTalk 2006 R2 installed as BizTalk 2009 has some noticeable branding differences that R1 and R2 do not have.

The content itself comes from the BizTalk 2009 MSDN documentation, but I am posting for quick reference and in case the MSDN link changes(it is beta documentation).

To determine your version, do the following:
  1. From RegEdit, navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\BizTalk Server\3.0 key.

  2. Check the ProductVersion key and note the version number.

  3. Map the version number from your key to the table below:

3.0.4902.0 BizTalk Server 2004
3.0.6070.0 BizTalk Server 2004 SP1
3.0.7405.0 BizTalk Server 2004 SP2
3.5.1602.0 BizTalk Server 2006
3.6.1404.0 BizTalk Server 2006 R2

If the value of the ProductVersion key is greater than 3.6.1404.0, the version of BizTalk Server is BizTalk Server 2009.

On my machine I am running BizTalk 2009 Beta and my version is but do remember that this is a Beta release and this version number is bound to change.
