Besides that, the following dialog "Version [Local]" is equivalent.

 

"Version [Local]" Tab

The following dialog shows the installed TwinCAT Level of the lokale system (at this example it is "TwinCAT NC I" )  and the version und "Build"- number of it (correspondingly the version 2.9 [Build 931]).
