Reading Time: 3 minutes

If you ever need to determine which version of Dynamics NAV or Dynamics GP you are currently using, here’s how you can quickly find out the exact product version number of your software. This doesn’t simply mean that it determines whether you have Dynamics NAV 2009 or 2013. While that information is certainly included, the product version number includes which version of that particular software it is, specifically in regard to updates. Each update will change the product version number, and this number is crucial for tech support.

We start with Dynamics NAV, but you can quickly jump down to Dynamics GP if needed.
