You may need to verify which version of K2 Platform Classic or K2 Five is installed on a particular machine in a K2 environment, or which Cumulative Updates and Fix Packs have been applied in a K2 environment. This article describes how to determine which Cumulative Updates or Fix Packs have been installed, and how to determine the version of K2 installed on a particular machine.
For information on build numbers, versions, updates, Cumulative Updates, and release dates, please refer to the KB article KB001421: K2 Product Releases and Build Numbers. That article also contains links to the release notes for each release.

Use the About Dialog in K2 Designer to determine the current version of K2 Platform Classic in your environment. You can also view and copy a list of previously installed versions and fix packs, and download the list as a CSV file. See the About Dialog topic for more information on how to use the feature.
K2 Platform Classic and K2 Five environments may be updated by your organization's K2 administration team. If necessary, you can determine which version of K2 Platform Classic or K2 Five, Cumulative Update or Fix Pack is currently installed in your environment by launching the Programs and Features tool in Windows' Control Panel and looking at the version numbers associated with the installed K2 components. You can use the KB article KB001421: K2 Product Releases and Build Numbers, to determine the installed product version/cumulative update/fix pack based on the version number displayed in the Programs and Features tool. The screenshots below illustrate some sample values for different installations of K2 Five 5.1.
Example: K2 5.1 (No Fix Pack Installed, version is 5.0002.1000.x)
Example: K2 5.1 (With Fix Pack 1 installed, version is 5.0002.1001.x)
In K2 Platform Classic and K2 Five 5.0 or later, you can also determine which version of K2 Platform Classic or K2 Five is installed on a K2 server by querying the autodiscover endpoint for your environment as follows:
If necessary, you can determine which Fix Packs have been applied to your K2 Platform Classic K2 Five (version 5.2 or later) environment as follows:
To determine which Cumulative Updates and Fix Packs have been installed in your K2 environment if you are using a version of K2 Platform Classic, K2 Five prior to K2 Five 5.1 or K2 4.7, you can execute the following SQL query against the K2 database. (Do not make any data, definition, or security modifications in the K2 database unless instructed to do so by K2 Support. The query below only reads data from one table in the K2 database.)
K2 Client Tools are only available on K2 environments that have been upgraded from K2 blackpearl 4.7. For machines where K2 components have been installed (such as workstations with K2 Studio components or servers with K2 server components), you can use the Windows Control Panel's Programs section to determine the installed version. How you get to Programs and Features may differ between operating systems.
