Check for .NET Installed

Thank you in advance for any and all assistance. It is greatly appreciated.
Is there a way to programmatically check for .NET Framework versions
installed on the computer?

Dear Mr. Bragg,

In order to find out if a particular framework exists on a computer, no
program is required, but a simple batch file will do.

If a framework is installed you can check easily by going to

There you will find subdirectories (V1.0.*, V1.1.*, V2.0.*).
Just check with your batch file like this:


IF EXIST %SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\V1.0.* ECHO Framework 1.0

IF EXIST %SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\V1.1.* ECHO Framework 1.1

IF EXIST %SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\V2.0.* ECHO Framework 2.0

Best Regards,
