The easiest way to determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed on a computer is to locate the %systemroot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework folder. You can paste the listed address for the Framework folder into a Windows Explorer address bar to navigate to the Framework folder. The three released versions of the .NET Framework are contained in the following folders:" v1.0.3705
" v1.1.4322
" v2.0.50727
Note If you see other directories that have a vN.N.NXXXX format that are not listed in this article, the versions may be beta versions or pre-released versions of the .NET Framework. Those versions are outside the scope of this article.

To determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed on a computer, follow these steps:1. Open any one of the folders in the previous list, and then locate the Mscorlib.dll file.
2. Right-click the file, and then click Properties.
3. Click the Version tab, and then note the file version.
4. Use the previous list to determine which version of the .NET Framework is installed on the computer, and then click OK.
