logodotNETInspector Portable 1.3.0 has been released. dotNETInspector allows you to easily determine which versions (and service packs) of the .NET framework are installed on the local PC. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. And it's open source and completely free.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.


ScreenshotdoTNETInspector shows you which version of the .NET framework are installed on the current PC and which service packs of each version are installed. This can be useful for determining which versions you need to add for a given piece of software and to determine if a given portable .NET app will run.

It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.

Thanks for building this one, Ken. I added in a custom icon based on the Oxygen icon set's SVG for zooming in all sizes from 16 to 256 pixels. The set is GPL licensed (as well as CC) so it's compatible. This will come in handy with verifying the Platform's upcoming .NET detection as we start rolling out .NET portable apps for folks who want them.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

+1 on the thanks! This will indeed be handy to have.

I will incorporate your logo into the official source as it is much better than the icon I threw together.

As we speak I am working on the next update for it which will incorporate a few new command-line parameters. I will look into .NET 4.5 detection while I am at it.

I have had a couple of reports from users that the website link within the app links to my old .tk domain which has since been leased to a malware vendor.

I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused anyone and I will release a new version shortly with the proper link, as well as .NET 4.5 support.

It's like one of those domains that have nothing but ads related to words in the the domain (which often link to less-than-reputable sites).
