    I have alot of SLIC OEM certs, including duplicates of OEM's.
    I wanted to categorize them as 2.0 or 2.1 so I know which ones will work with Windows 7 or Vista.

    Is there any way to tell the difference? 2.0 or 2.1 is not in the name.

    I'm not checking the PC for SLIC support. I am trying to tell if a SLIC Certificate (XRM-MS File) is 2.0 or 2.1. I have several certs with similar names.

    I noticed that online tool puts SLICs issued in 2009 in bold.

    I take it these are SLIC 2.1?

    Yep, The "Date issued" is the only difference, but actually these are all still version 2.0 Certificates

    90% of the available Slic's will work with with Vista certificates
    Although there might be certificates issued in 2009 available, the older Vista ones still work as well (for example: Toshiba, HP, Medion)
