Someone recently asked me about the availability of an updated version of my sample .NET Framework detection code that supports the .NET Framework 4.5. I could’ve sworn I had already updated that sample code to detect the .NET Framework 4.5, but when I looked back in my archive, it turns out I only updated the version of the detection code that gets built into the .NET Framework setup verification tool and the .NET Framework cleanup tool.
Since today is the official public release date for Windows 8.1, and Windows 8.1 includes the .NET Framework 4.5.1 as a part of the OS, I thought it would be a good day to post updated versions of my sample .NET Framework detection code with support for detecting the .NET Framework 4.5 and the .NET Framework 4.5.1.
You can find information about the sample .NET Framework detection code and download links in the article at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2009/06/16/9763379.aspx.
