I have posted an updated version of the .NET Framework setup verification tool that supports verifying the install state of the .NET Framework 4.5. It has also been updated to correctly recognize when it is running on Windows 8. This support is preliminary because the final versions of the .NET Framework 4.5 and Windows 8 have not yet shipped, and I’ll post an updated version in the future when the .NET Framework 4.5 and Windows 8 ship if any changes are made between now and then that cause the tool to report incorrect results.
There is more information about how to download and use the .NET Framework setup verification tool in the user’s guide at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx.
I have not yet posted updated versions of the .NET Framework cleanup tool or the sample .NET Framework detection code, but they are in progress and I’ll upload then and post an update on my blog when they are ready.
As always, if you run into any issues or have any feedback about the .NET Framework setup verification tool, please let me know by posting a comment on one of my blog posts or using the contact form.
