Finding the .NET version on windows

 In Java, you can execute a simple command "java -version", but unfortunately it is not so straightforward in .NET.

The below stackoverflow thread shows some commands that can be leveraged to find out the .NET version -

The commands which worked for me on Win10 are as follows:

Command Prompt (cmd):

dir /b /ad /o-n %systemroot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v?.*

The above command will list down all versions of .NET except v4.5 and above. 

reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\full" /v version

The above command will work for .NET versions v4.5 and above. 


gci 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP' -recurse | gp -name Version,Release -EA 0 | where { $_.PSChildName -match '^(?!S)\p{L}'} | select PSChildName, Version, Release

The above powershell command is the most versatile and will list down all versions.
