sp_checksqlversion

By acedba,

How many times have you seen @@version return a number but failed to interpret what service pack it is? Although SQL 2000 gives a gift (SERVERPROPERTY) of querying a readable value, my script will remedy the puzzle and show more parameters such as CPU speed, memory, windows version, and installation date. The limitations are:
1. MSDE data engine will be shown as 'NULL';
2. Too old or too new processors may be incorrectly displayed;
3. Processor number may be different from what the POST shows if the registry keeps another key number.
4. All numbers interpreted are subject to change due to new releases of service packs, processors, windows version, etc.
