There’s no denying that without .Net framework, you are not allowed to download some software. I’ve got a good example for you. When I tried to install the NordVPN on Windows 10, it didn’t let me complete the task because of the missing .Net Framework. Even for some websites, you can’t visit them until you’ve installed the .Net latest version.
So to stay tuned with the newly introduced products, some of us like to determine the .NET Framework Versions. There’s nothing wrong with it. That’s why I present to you a fully prepared guide on How To Check .NET Version on Windows 10. There are multiple ways to complete this task, let’s talk about them one-by-one.
3 Ways Check .NET Version on Windows 10
1) Use PowerShell
- Right-click on the start menu button and select “Windows PowerShell (Admin)”
- Execute the following command in PowerShell:
- import-module servermanager
- For ASP.NET 3.5 users, they need to imply the following command:
- get-windowspackage web-asp-net
- For ASP.NET 4.5 users, they’ll be required to run the following command:
- get-windowsfeature Net-Framework-45-Code
In case you are unable to find any .Net Framework version, then type and run the provided-below commands:
- ASP.NET 3.5: add-windowsfeature web-asp-net
- ASP.NET 4.5: add-windowsfeature Net-Framework-45-Core
2) Access Windows 10 Registry Editor
- Press Windows + R button to open Run box.
- Type Regedit in the dialogue box and press enter.
- Navigate to the following path in the registry editor:
- Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full
- Here you’ll see your installed .NET Framework version right front of the Release DWORD value key (it indicates 4.5 or higher .NET version is installed).
3) Through the Server Manager
- Use Cortana’s Search bar to open the Server Manager.
- From “Configure this local server”, select “Add roles and features”
- Click on “Role-based or feature-based installation”
- Hit the “Next” button and then select the option named “Select a server from the server pool”
- In case you have installed ASP.Net, their versions will be shown to you inside “Web Server” > “Web Server” > “Application Development”
