Show the user that .NET was just installed.

Dear all!

I'm trying to implement a summary dialog which will be displayed at the end of the installation. Among other things this dialog should show the user whether .NET was installed or not (at the beginning of the installation).

Does anybody know how I could do this? Is there maybe a property like "DotNetInstalled" or some registry key which i could query?

Thanks in advance for your help!

There are registry keys which indicate that .NET is installed on the machine. But short of trying to check their timestamp, I don't see how this would tell you whether it was just installed, or had been on the machine for some amount of time prior to your setup.

is this an msi or installscript? with my old installscripts I'd use the DOTNETFRAMEWORKINSTALLED at the beginning of the install and set a flag for it. Then when I wrote to my log files I'd either write the string '.net installed already' or 'not installed' to it depending on the flag. kinda tedious but it worked.
