Have I got .NET Framework?

  Mike2002 19:57 21 Jan 2007

I read that Microsoft's .NET Framework is automatically installed (whether we like it or not?) with Windows XP Service Pack 2.

As I have the latter installed, I assume that I also
have the Framework, but is there any way of checking this, and what version I have?

mine shows up in the add/remove part of control panel.

As jay.p states it is listed in Add/Remove Programs, including version.

You can download the latest versions (plus an update patch) from:

I can't see any mention of it in the Add/Remove Windows Components section.

It won't be in that section.

Look in: Change or Remove Programs

As Powerless states, clicking on the top left hand button.

The main panel should then state:

"Currently installed programs and updates:"

...and provide the list of programs, applications, updates etc underneath.

Loads of Windows Security Updates are listed, but no sign of the Framework anywhere. See this screenshot showing part of the list.

No it definately looks like I don't have it. I've been Googling around and, among other things, found these two Registry references to it - which are not listed.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v1.1.4322
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\policy\v1.1

Its full listing is:

Microsoft iNET Framework (plus versions and updates).

Your screen shot starts later in the alphabetical listings.

I'm not certain if iNET Framework is/was automatically installed when I originally installed SP2.

As far as I can recall I had to install iNET Framework because it was required to allow use of a PCI TV card.
