An easy way to find the .net version running on your machine.

I am working with a client to find a piece of software that will meet his needs. One of the software packages requires .net 3.5 or higher. Many of the solutions required downloading software or opening the registry. I found a much simpler solution.

A post at techsupportalert had a very simple solution.  Paste the following into a command prompt

dir %WINDIR%\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v*

A list of installed versions except 4.5 will be displayed. .NET Framework 4.5 is stored in a sub-directory of 4.0.

So, you might have 4.5 installed but it won’t show with this command. If you aren’t concerned about v 4.5, then this trick works like a charm.
