What Build Version Is This?

Just bought a OEM System Builder Pack of Windows Home Premium 7 - 64 bit. It says the build date was 10/07/2009 to a novice such as myself that seems pretty old. The outside of the DVD box lists many things like Carton No., Work Order No., Label Part No., Internal Part No., etc. W/O breaking the seal and opening the outer cardboard cover, how can I find out what the "build version" is (that seems to be the way people refer to their version) also, does that seem "old" and if it is, will updating it be as good as the newest version or should I just find a newer one. I am trying to make as few mistakes as I can on this being my first complete system build and it is almost finished and I am getting pretty nervous about that "First Big Boot"! Thanks for the help and try and remember your first build. :ouch:

    There has only been one release of Windows 7 to date, so I wouldn't worry about it.
    Windows will download any updates required after instalation.
  2. Jonmor is right - the build date you quoted is when the current version of Windows 7 was built. There is no newer version.
  3. After applying all Windows Updates, it will be completely "up to date", so to speak.
