We have ancient Windows 2000 Server box running Commerce Server 2000. I'm trying to determine what service pack the Commerce Server has and I don't see any way to do that from the Management Console. I know the latest service pack for that release of Commerce Server is SP3, but this server is so rickety that I'm afraid to break something by attempting to install a service pack that may already be in place. How can I tell what service pack for the Commerce Server (if any) is installed on this machine?

I found there is a log file placed in the root Commerce Server program directory (which is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Commerce Server\ on this box) called CS2KSP3.log. That file indicates the date of service pack 3 installation. This solves my immediate issue, though a more concrete answer would be appreciated.
