  • 1.  Best way to check the product version

    Posted Jan 26, 2017 06:02 AM

    I'm trying to automate installations and upgrades of a few CA Products (Spectrum and CAPC). I'm having a hard time figuring out the best way checking the current installed version from the server where the product is installed. 


    Any suggestions of commands that I can execute from the shell or files that I can read to figure out the installed version?


    CA really should simplify that adding a --version to the products.

    Hello Renato,


    please post an idea for adding the --version switch across the board for consistency.


    and in the meantime:


    for Spectrum:


    first 2 numbers are the version, 3rd is the sp level, and 4th is the patch,

    the last number is just a build.


    verify version in



    and for CAPM:

    here is a techdoc:



    and some additional alternatives:

    PC: Help->About option from top right corner of UI

    DA/DC: .history file in InstallLogs directory

    DR: Simply launch the adminTools UI and note the version in the top title bar


    please let me know if this answers your questions.
