Earlier, it was much easier to understand the software version that you are using. But now, it has become quite confusing because the software's product name and version number are quite different now. 


But before finding out the versions, it is essential to check which option you have got. For example, it is Dynamics NAV or Dynamics 365 Business Central

If you are using Dynamics NAV, there are different displays for different versions of NAV.
