if(!(Get-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell -ErrorAction:SilentlyContinue))
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell


and the command:



It will return something like this:

In my case I have SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise installed in my SharePoint farm.

To find out a build of SharePoint use another command:

get-spfarm | select BuildVersion

You can use it when you create a test area or when you need to align versions.
