You can test whether mscoree.dll exists in the %SystemRoot%\system32 directory.
To determine which .NET Framework versions are installed, enunerate keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\policy

BOOL FileExists(LPCTSTR sFileName)
{
    TCHAR name[1000];

    ExpandEnvironmentStrings(sFileName, name, 1000);

    DWORD dwResult = GetFileAttributes(name);

    if ( dwResult == 0xffffffff  ||
        dwResult & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY )
    {
        return FALSE;
    }

    return TRUE;
}

if ( FileExists(_T("%SystemRoot%\\system32\\mscoree.dll")))
{
    // exists
}
