Go to the Control Panel-> Click on Add Remove Programs-> Check Microsoft .Net Framework version or go to the Framework Folder, Path=C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework, their are separate folder for each .Net Framework.

Like: You Find v1.0.3705, v1.1.4322, v2.0.50727 means you have upto .Net Framework 2.0.

I have this code:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.IO;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

namespace WindowsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {

        private const string FRAMEWORK_PATH = "\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework";
        private const string WINDIR1 = "windir";
        private const string WINDIR2 = "SystemRoot";

        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            MessageBox.Show(AllFrameworkVersions);
        }

        public string WindowsPath
        {
            get
            {
                string strWinDir = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable(WINDIR1);
                if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(strWinDir))
                {
                    strWinDir = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable(WINDIR2);
                }

                return strWinDir;
            }
        }

        public string NetFrameworkInstallationPath
        {
            get { return WindowsPath + FRAMEWORK_PATH; }
        }

        public string AllFrameworkVersions
        {
            get
            {
                string strInfo = string.Empty;
                string strVersion = "Unknown";

                foreach (string strX in Directory.GetDirectories(NetFrameworkInstallationPath, "v*"))
                {
                    strVersion = ExtractVersion(strX);
                    if (PatternIsVersion(strVersion))
                    {
                        if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(strInfo))
                            strInfo += ", ";
                        strInfo += strVersion;
                    }
                }

                return strInfo;
            }
        }

        private string ExtractVersion(string pdirectory)
        {
            int intStartIndex = pdirectory.LastIndexOf("\\") + 2;
            return pdirectory.Substring(intStartIndex, pdirectory.Length - intStartIndex);
        }

        private bool PatternIsVersion(string pVersion)
        {
            return new Regex("[0-9](.[0-9]){0,3}").IsMatch(pVersion);
        }


    }

Visual Studio 2008 cannot target .net framework 4.0 (only VS2010 can).

VS2008 can target 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5.

You have to either install .net frameork 2.0 and 3.5 to continue using VS2008 or use VS2010.

Apparently you have created a new question (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/ASP.NET/Q_26847072.html) to contiue to work on this.

Since I have answered this question (how can i find the .net framework version in my windows xp), can you close this one?
