Detect IE update version or service pack number

Hi all,

I'm building a website which provides contents that only work for some
browser types and versions. I know I can get most of the client browser
information using HttpBrowserCapabilities class, but I can't find a way to
determine IE update version or service pack number. Any ideas?

TIA

Hi Scott,

Thanks for replying, I have read the article but I don't seem to find
anything related to IE update version or service pack number.
Any more idea?

Browser detection is not possible for cheaters who keep their post on top by
setting their clock ahead.

Also, is there any way for you to possibly find any more irrelevant groups
to post to?

Hi Henry:

You have to take the Version property of Request.Browser object and
compare it to a list of known versions. I don't know of a descriptive
property. What follows are the versions I've seen since 5.5:
