Install base of .NET 1.1

P: n/a
Does anyone know what percentage of Windows computers have .NET 1.1
already installed? I'd like to get a sense of how what percentage of
our customers will have to run the .NET 1.1 redistributable installer
before being able to run our .NET 1.1 based product.

I'm guessing about 50%, but someone must have done some market
research on this by now. Also, out of curiosity, any numbers of .NET
2.0 installs?

Thanks, Chris

If you use .NET 2 you can have the installer for your application install
..NET 2 if needed with the user having to do anything.

Thanks for the tip.

However, I'd still like to get a sense of what percentage of Windows
machines have at least .NET 1.1

IE sends .NET version information in it's browser field to web servers
so the most reliable information for your target users is probably in
your web logs already, assuming you have a website your customers
would go to (even if it's not directly related it should be a good
indicator).

It is less than 100%.

Greater than 0%

50% seems like a good unbiased figure.

Correct, perhaps the 42 gave it way!
