.NET Version Detector

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

.NET Version Detector

#1 Post by I am Baas » Wed Mar 21, 2012 7:03 am

ASoft .NET Version Detector is a lightweight tool that gives information on the different versions of Microsoft .NET that are installed on a machine.

How very cryptic. I haven't been testing recently as I've had my developer hat on! :mrgreen:

But its not stealth as it leaves this reg key?

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ASoft\DotnetVersionDetector]
"License"="1"

I tested on Windows XP SP3 (without .NET, no idea if this affects the addition of the license key) and selected the close button and I didn't get any registry key.

the accountant is correct. I did not get this the first time I tested though. Funny thing is that if you do not accept the license by just hitting the "Close" button you could still use the application. It will still write an empty key to the registry though.

Will amend the first post.

On the XP machine the OK & Cancel button weren't even visible so that's why I clicked 'Close' (no empty registry key on XP,) I don't know it it's because I used a VM machine smaller than my monitor (so therefore it was 'drawn' out of bounds) but this shouldn't even be a problem. Anyway the application has some fatal flaw(s) e.g. using the close button to bypass the license agreement.

I'm in the midst of creating a similar (non .NET) application. Watch this space.

ASoft .NET Version Detector v14 released (31.10.2013):
Version 14 can now also detect .NET 4.5.1 and an extra remark is added to the UI which indicates up until which .NET Version it supports.
