How to find Kentico hotfix when KIM is not installed

Elijah Mitchell asked on February 20, 2019 06:13

On my development machine I can view the hotfix level of the Kentico website using KIM. KIM isn't installed on our production machines clean master apk.

In Kentico v7.0 the hotfix level was reported in CMS Desk but that isn't the case in Kentico v9.0.

Is there anywhere I can look to find the hotfix level without using KIM?

You can basically lookup the exact Kentico version by taking a look at any of the Kentico assemblies in your installation.

But also, Kentico 9 (or any other version) shows you the exact version when you open the 'Help toolbar' in the header of the administration interface, by clicking on the 'help' icon.

Take a look at this answer on Stackoverflow. There are multiple ways to find out what version and hotfix you are on. You cannot rely on one specific place either because some are specific to data, while others are specific to code. Meaning the Kentico UI may show 11.0.33 but the txt file in the database shows hotfix 47. They don't all work together and for a very good reason, they can all be updated manually at different times.

So what Dražen points out is somewhat correct, there are additional ways to do this and will get you the full version and hotfix across code and database.
