MS.NET Framework version??

P: n/a
I know I drilled down into the Windows
folder\Microsoft.net\Framework\v1.1.4322 folder and looked at the version of
Mscorcfg.dll to get the SP level from the version number:

Mine shows v1.1.4322.573 which is supposed to be 1.1 with no service packs.

***BUT***

I ran across this today:

************FROM
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=3...22120121120120
*************************************

The .NET Framework version 1.1

Note A bug exists in the installation process of the .NET Framework 1.1 SP1.
The information in the detail pane and in About .NET Framework Configuration
on the Help menu is not updated. It appears as if SP1 was not installed. To
verify the installation of SP1, follow the steps in the "Determine the
version of the .NET Framework without MMC 1.2" section.

With the .NET Framework 1.1, a new registry hive has been created
specifically to make it easier to find the service pack level. Start
Registry Editor, and then locate the following registry key:

Key Name: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\NET Framework
Setup\NDP\v1.1.4322

Value: SP

Data type: REG_DWORD

The data in the SP value tells you which service pack is installed for the
..NET Framework 1.1. For example, if the value of SP is 0, no service pack is
installed for the .NET Framework 1.1. If the value is 1, Service Pack 1 for
the .NET Framework 1.1 is installed.

Note that this method cannot be used to detect if any hotfixes are installed
for the .NET Framework 1.1.

Sure enough when I check my version by this method, I'm supposedly running
1.1 SP1 on my dev box...

Anyone have the latest way to verify which SP level my devbox is running for
sure??

TIA

HEy I'll reply to my own messages just to share the knowledge - howsabout
that!! Where was Microsoft when this was announced??

TESTING
I used the virtual 2000 Server and installed Framework 1.1

*****************Results************************** ******

SP Level Displayed Version
SP Registry

Framework 1.1 no SP 1.1.4322.573
0

Framework 1.1 w SP1 1.1.4322.573
1

So infact this bug lives on!! Only way to know what SP level the Framework
is on is via the Registry setting. The Framework about DOES NOT GET
Updated.

Peace out!
