Checking installed .NET Framework versions

Hello everyone,

Today I’m presenting a small and quick trick to check which versions of .NET Framework are installed on your computer.

The things you’ll need:

Internet Explorer with Javascript enabled!

Here’s how it works:

Copy / paste the following line straight into the address bar of IE


Hit enter and you’ll be shown the following messagebox:

The popup above is from my laptop which has the following versions installed:

  • .NET Framework 2.0 (.NET CLR 2.0.50727)
  • .NET Framework 3.0 (.NET CLR 3.0.30729)
  • .NET Framework 3.5 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
  • .NET Framework 4.0 (.NET4.0C & .NET4.0E)

And there you have it, easy as pie 😉
