How to get the latest Microsoft .NET Framework Version

Our applications utilize Microsoft .NET Framework runtime libraries in order to function. A minimum version level is also required.

If you are trying to install one of our applications and it shows a message such as "installation ended prematurely", this is likely due to no .NET Framework installed or a version that is too old.

We recommend installing .NET version 4.8 or higher on both servers and desktops. Generally this comes preinstalled on most newer Windows computers.

In case it is not installed (such as an older machine), you can download the runtime installer directly from Microsoft from here.

Below is the CMD command to check the latest .NET version:

reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\full" /v version
