Hi:
PROC SETINIT will tell you what's licensed. If you are running in a client/server environment, then you'd have to submit the proc step on every server. If you are running a single-machine install, then submitting this code shows what is licensed:
[pre]
proc setinit;
run;
[/pre]

Information is written to the SAS log -- not to the output window.

One additional note. SETINIT tells you what is licensed, it does not tell you what is installed. Lex Jansen posted this solution to the usenet group comp.soft-sys.sas for determining what is actually installed:

"You might want to run the SAS Installation Qualification tool (SAS
IQ). This will tell you not only what is installed, but also validates
the installation to check for misplaced or corrupted software files.
I have been using this extensively in the past to validate client
installations.
I had it setup in such a way that this would run automatically
(through a central AUTOEXEC.SAS) when users would run SAS the first
time.
It compares MD5 checksums of files with SAS supplied checksums and
tell you exactly which components are installed.
The output is in XML (and also PDF) and can be easily processed if
needed.

There is also a program referenced in this SAS note to do it:

Re: other sas-software linked with basesas

I just reviewed this program
http://support.sas.com/kb/7/640.html
and it is only current to SAS 9.0 and EGuide 2.0, so the SAS Installation Qualification tool is the better approach.
