.NET Version Detector 2010 Beta-1 is here!

November 11, 2009

For those that don’t know .NET Version Detector yet, it is a tool that can be used to detect the versions of .NET that are installed on a machine.
It shows the detailed version and it also directly links to the download pages where you can download the latest runtime & SDK of that version of .NET.

It was created to easily detect the installed/missing versions and be able to download them without having to search all over the net.

Version 2010, main new feature is detecting .NET 4.0.
Version 2009 could detect .NET 4.0 Beta-1, but Microsoft made some changes and thus broke the detection method.
The UI has als changed a bit and is now updated to the new .NET logo’s.

You can find more details on the new .NET features here:
