How to find versions of oracle components associated with Oracle Apps in Windows Environment

Many times we find ourselves in a situation where we just couldnt get the steps to ascertain the versions of components associated with our instance, be it on Unix/Windows. I had listed the steps below to ascertain the version for each component. All the steps can be used in both Unix/Windows environment , except for Developer6i version. We also have a shell script which will give all this information in a table format which was not tested till now on a Windows environment. If interested put a comment, we will write the script in a post.

<you should be getting the banner with oracle version information>. Alternatively you can also execute
Select * from v$version;

Apps Version

select release_name from apps.fnd_product_Groups;

%IAS_ORACLE_HOME%\Apache\Apache\apache.exe -version

Developer 6i PatchSet

cd %ORACLE_HOME% (806 Oracle Home)
cd bin
Ifrun60.exe help=yAbove command will pop-up a window simillar to this

Forms PatchSet WindowThumbrule : Subtract the fourth integer by 9 to get the patchset level.
Fourth integer => 24
