Question

How do I AppSearch for Dot Net Framework?

Answer

The official registry key/value to check is HKLM\Software\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\@Install=1. Of course, this key/value has the same issue as you mention below because the version will continue to change until 2.0. Previous versions of the framework will sit here too.
