How to determine the installed SharePoint version

When you are thrown into a project with pre-installed MOSS servers, it’s always good to know if the latest service packs and hot fixes are installed. But how do you quickly determine the installed SharePoint version? Well, it’s rather easy. Start the SharePoint Central Administration application.

How to install the Microsoft Loopback adapter in Windows 7

Microsoft Loopback adapter

For some reason, the Add New Hardware wizard is missing the Microsoft Loopback adapter in the Control Panel in the Beta build of Windows 7 (build 7000). That makes it rather hard to install the loopback adapter. However, you can actually still start the wizard following these instructions.

Click on the Windows Orb (The old Start button) or press the WIN key.

Type hdwwiz.
