How to tell what OSX I have, while booted into BootCamp

Hello everybody.  I'm currently booted into my Windows BootCamp partition, but have read access to the OSX partition.  How can I tell what version of OSX I have while staying booted into my BootCamp Windows session.  Is there a file I can look at on the OSX partition that has this info?
I know the easy answer is to boot into the Mac side and just look in About This Mac, but I can't reboot right now.

Open the file /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist in any text editor. If needed, copy it to the Windows partition and change the copy's extension to txt.

  • How to tell what packages have recently run

    Occasionally, after start up, I'll see something that looks like a package that quickly runs.  I have no idea where to look for information to figure out what ran.  I've ran searches trying to find out how to tell what packages have recently run but have not found anything useful.  If anyone knows or has any ideas on what I can do to figure that out, I'd love the help.

    You are welcome. Based on my experiences, the only time I look at Console is when something is not working. You could get overly engrossed trying to figure out what everything means.

    The time capsule though blinks amber and the Airport Utility shows blinking amber light and has a red circle with the number 1 in it.
    There is an error.. probably trivial.. firmware update, default password..
    Open the airport utility and find out what the error is.
    Simply click the TC and see status in the summary page.. it will list all the errors and what you should do.. fix or ignore them. ie this TC has an error.. default password.. I chose to ignore.. when I "fix" the problem the LED goes green.
    Here is additional TC.. it is blinking amber with faults.
    Click the fault. eg default password.
    You can ignore or edit .. if you click edit it will take you to the full setup where you can change the settings.
    I ignored my errors and now it is green..

  • How to tell what template is applied to a Framemaker file?

    I'm new to please excuse if this is a silly question.
    We are trying to figure out how to tell what template has been applied to a Framemaker file. We are using the structured view in Framemaker 7.2.
    Perhaps I am thinking too much like a Microsoft Word user -- in which case I can look at what template has been applied to a document.
    Does Framemaker work the same way -- or are templates associated with Framemaker files in some other way?
    Thank you --

    FrameMaker works differently. Strictly speaking, there is no way to tell which template was used last. A FrameMaker template is just a FrameMaker document which you call "template". Using File > Import > Formats you can import all or selected formats from one document to another. The main benefit: Each document is completely self-contained and does not require any other document.
    Many solutions I know of include a user variable named something like "template-version" into their template document or put the version information on one of the reference pages. When importing user variables or reference pages, this can tell you version imported last.

    How do I get CDs that have been imported into my iTunes library to sync/transfer to my iPhone?? All the material that I purchased from iTunes has transferred just fine, but although the CDs will import to iTunes, they will not sync up with my phone. How do I do this??

  • How do I access the music from my Mac drive while booted into Windows?

    How do I access the music from my Mac drive while booted into Windows via Bootcamp? I tried using MacDrive but it's not supported for Vista 64-bit edition. Is there another program out there that I can use? I just want to be able to access my music that's on Leopard while in Vista. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Your best bet is to move the music on the Windows side since Leopard will be able to read and play the music from the mounted Windows drive (Leopard will not be able write anything to the Windows NTFS partition).
    In your case it won't work the other way around.

  • How can I tell what table(s) have the most transactions against them

    Hello, in Oracle, RHEL 6 x86-64, how can I tell what tables have the highest transaction activity?
    Picked "Objects" because I could not find a space related to performance tuning

    What version of Oracle are you running (standard or enterprise)?
    Easist system is to run an AWR or statspack report. If you run either of these you will see sections on segments (so segments by logical reads, physical reads) which is easily digestible.
    v$segment_statistics will also give you a breakdown on segment access.

  • How to tell what version of Mac OSX?

    I am a person who  works for a university here in the US. Alot of the times, I have macs that dont boot, but I can see the data from the hard drive, via an external dock. Is there a way to tell what version of the OS is from a strictly file level? Without being booted into the OS?

    If the computer's booted into an OS which doesn't support that(not all Mac OS X versions do), open the file /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist in any text editor.

  • How to tell what generation ipod you have

    Is there a way to tell what generation ipod you have? I have a 2 GB ipod Nano and I want to buy a CD player that also plays music from your ipod, but it only supports 2nd generation and up.

    There is a chart here, but if your Nano is plastic on front (white or black) and chrome on the back it is a 1st Generation, if it is all aluminum front and back and tall and thin it is a 2nd Generation, if it is aluminum on the front, chrome on the back, and sort of short and squatty it is a 3rd generation.

  • How to tell what fonts are missing in a Photosohp CS5 document?

    Hello!  I have received some work from a graphic designer.  I need to modify some of the text in the document.  When I open the document I get an error message:
    Some text layers might need to be updated before they can be used for vector based output.  Do you want to update these layers now?  [Update] [No]
    If I click [Update] it replaces the font with Myriad Pro.  If I click [No] the text looks the way the designer intended, but I have the exclamation mark-triangle symbol over the layer with the text.  If I try to edit the text I get another warning:
    Editing or rendering the text layer "Text Layer" will cause its layout to change.  Continue?  [Cancel]  [OK]
    The same behavior described above occurs.  If I click [Cancel] I obviously can't edit the text.  If I click [OK] it changes the font to Myriad Pro.
    I would like to determine what font the layer is using.  I could swear that previous versions of Photoshop would tell me what fonts were missing when I opened a document.  I can't use the text tool to select the text without it changing the font.  Other posts have mentioned using the text tool to look at the text drop-down to find a greyed-out font which indicates the missing font.  I do not have that.  I only have perhaps 200 fonts installed.  Can anyone tell me how to determine what fonts a .PSD document is using?  I would prefer not to bug the graphic designer if possible.  Thanks much!
    ~ Dan

    Not sure why you are getting ""Font is present on the system but requires a layout change.", usually you do not get that instead the name of the font shows.
    We use extensis Universal Type Client, so the fonts load automatically upon opening files, and never really get missing fonts in Photoshop.
    Actually fontbook has auto font loading if you want to give that a try. Fontbook >> Preferences

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Kultar, this did not work for me but something that I did find to work was a registry setting.  The setting is:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 11.5\Report Application Server\Viewer
    The subkey is PrintControlVersion which should have a value of "11,5,10,1263"
