(Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full").Release

The following command can be run to determine if the .NET Framework version is 4.8 or later. If the value returned is True, then .NET Framework is 4.8 or later.

(Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full").Release -ge 528040

  1. On the Start menu, choose Run.

  2. In the Open box, enter regedit.exe.

    You must have administrative credentials to run regedit.exe.

  3. In the Registry Editor, open the following subkey:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full

    Note Note

    If the Full subkey is not present, then you do not have a the .NET Framework 4.8 installed.

    Check for a DWORD value named Release. The existence of the Release DWORD indicates that the .NET Framework 4.8 or newer has been installed on that computer.
