How do I identify which version of SMS a particular database was last used on if I only have the Data folder?

  • Copy the Data folder to your system.
  • Using the DBBrowser.exe browse to the Store Information Database table.
  • Locate the Version field. This field is the actual database version # and not the program number.
  • Compare the database version # to the list below to identify which Major version the database was last used on. This method will not identify the exact version # but will tell you the major release #.
Database Version

The version # listed below is for the very last version of a particular SMS release. You'll have to match up where the version # falls in the range below.

  • SMS v2000 has a [Store Information Database].Version 5.0006
  • SMS v8.6 has a [Store Information Database].Version
