How to determine the version of your Windows ISO file

After a lot of googling this morning I was able to find out how to determine the version of the Windows ISO file. This was important to me because I needed to know if the ISO I had included SP1 or not. This should work for Vista and up, basically any windows that has WIM files within.

First you will need to mount the ISO file to a computer so you can browse it. Then open up a command prompt as administrator and run the following command.

dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:E:\sources\install.wim /index:1

(E is the drive letter for the mounted ISO file)

Here is an example of the output from the command for a Windows 7 Enterprise ISO without any service packs.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:E:\sources\install.wim /index:1
