Whats the difference between Windows MCE 2002 & MCE 2005?

Dell invoice says supplied with MCE 2005 but version on pc is MCE 2002?

MCE 2005 was/is a vastimprovement on 2002, both in terms of functionality and stablity. It also has support for far more hardware (things like pvr cards) setups.

Sounds like Dell need to be contacted regarding this? If MCE 2002 is substantially inferior to MCE 2005 then they should provide the updated o/s?

If you are referring to what it says in General Tab in System Properties,I understand that it is a bug in MCE 2005 that did not update this.
If this is a recent PC you will have MCE 2005 despite what Properties says!

How do I check that it is MCE 2005?

It will be MCE 2005. I have a brand new Dell, and all Dells are supplied with the 2005 version. This is a bug as Lettervanman says.
