How to check the SharePoint Installation Type on Machine – Standalone or Farm

The solution is to launch the Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and check for the Server Role at the following location depending on the SharePoint version:

SharePoint 2007: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\WSS\ServerRole
SharePoint 2010: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS\ServerRole
SharePoint 2013: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\15.0\WSS\ServerRole

The possible values are as follows:

SINGLESERVER – means this is a standalone / single server installation
APPLICATION – means this is an application server on a full farm installation (could also include the web front end role as well if multiple roles are used)
WFE – means this is a web front-end server on a full farm installation
