    Thanks Mike. So that will be a good test for the OP.

    (I see there is a .net and a net registry key. I wonder if I looked under the wrong one. I'm on Vista just now)

    Mooly: what does the version number say when you select the "3.5" subkey in the first picture? Then again, you're on Vista so the version could be different.

    I just noticed that there's a subkey under 3.5 (called 1043) which says that I have the .5003 version instead of .4296.

    Let's see if the upcoming updates will change anything.

    Back on W8.1 at the moment. Here is the .net key.

    I think you're in the wrong registry path there. The folder should be Net Framework Setup (not .NETFramework) /NDP/3.5
    When selecting 3.5, the version number would show up in the right window.

    I just came across that key while looking. The Net one is as in my earlier post/s. I can look at the 3.5 Vista one again when I'm on it next.

    Oh sorry, I skipped your earlier post about not having that Net Framework Setup/NDP/3.5 key on Windows 8.1. Thanks a lot for your effort nonetheless.

    Maybe someone else with Windows 8.1 and 3.5 installed with the latest updates could show me their version?

    Oh good, I seem to have that exact version number when selecting the v3.5 key. However, I have a 1043 instead of a 1033 subkey which shows version 3.5.30729.5003 when selected.

    I guess I can finally let this rest now. Thanks a lot guys for your help. Mooly, you were right after all about this.
