Microsoft SQL ServerNo day when you learn something new is a wasted day. I was onsite with a client recently to do some work with them on Microsoft Dynamics GP and got chatting to Den in their IT department.

It turns out that SQL Server has a report you can run which will show which features are installed.

The report is run from the SQL Server Installation Center which is available from the Windows Start menu. Click on Tools and then on Installed SQL Server features discovery report:

If necessary, choose how you want to open the file, by selecting the browser of your choice:

How do you want to open this file?

The report will open and show all of the installed features:
