How can I verify Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package is installed

I'm having some issues with a Sybase product which depends on Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package. Sybase Tech Support claims I don't have Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package  installed. I do, however, have VS2005 Professional installed and running. I can verify that the Microsoft .NET Software Development Toolkit 2.0 is installed by looking at Add/Remove Programs. Is there a way to verify that Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package is installed or is it known to be there if VS2005 is installed and running.

There is a registry key to tell you if a version of the .net framework is installed:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\..

for 2 there should be

v2.0.50727 and a key in that folder called Install. It will be set to 1 is it is installed. You can check this in code or using regedit.

Thanks! That cleared it up. It turns out the PATH variable had .NET 1.1 in front so Sybase was grabbing the wrong version.
