testing if .NET Framework 2.0 is installed

P: n/a
how can i test during install time if the .NET Framework 2.0 has been
installed. i'm assuming it is in the registry somewhere, but i don't know
where to look, what to look for, and how to test for the 2.0 version?

thanks,

I just find it laughable

real quick-- can anyone tell me how to tell on Windows 2000 which
version of the .NET framework is installed?
real quick-- can anyone tell me how to tell on Windows XP which version
of the .NET framework is installed?
real quick-- can anyone tell me how to tell on Windows 2003 which
version of the .NET framework is installed?

I dont mean programmatically tell-- I mean; some typcial windows
admin-- how can he tell?

Config screen->Add/Remove software
The list shows you if and what versions of the .NET framework are installed.

Or check <%windir%>\Microsoft.NET\Framework

NO.. add/remove DOESNT include which version of the framework is
installed

on XP... 1.0 is installed.. on 2003; 1.1 is installed... try finding
THAT under add/remove programs

and let me guess.. with R2 of 2003; it includes 2.0 and it's not in the
add/remove programs?

that's just flat out not consistent

I do like the WINDIR command; i'll have to use that thanks

and yet another option for installing the framework. It looks like this will
also work with version 2.0.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324733

look down the page to the:
"Use Setup.exe to Distribute the .NET Framework with Your Visual Studio .NET
Application"

and the:
"Prepare Your Deployment Project for Use with the Setup.exe Bootstrapping
Application Sample"

and then the:
"Customize the Settings.ini File"
Sections of the page

you guys are missing the point

those fucking leper morons in Redmond don't have any easy; consistent
way to tell which version of the .NET framework is installed!

Umm yes it does. You just have to click the additional information link
(or whatever it's called in english) provided when you select the
framework entry in add/remove software. It will give you a box with info
including the full version.
