Qlikview is a stand-alone app with no support for plug-ins, or even real coding talent, although it requires one to be able to figure out workarounds for their arbitrary restrictions, numerous limitations, and bugs that they prefer to call "nuances".
As a programmer, Qlikview's "programming" features are an affront to my developer sensibilities. If anyone on the planet was in danger of having physical harm inflicted on them from a carefully aimed shot, it's the sub-humans that invented Qlikview.

Yeah, that is a good one. I used to use that all the time when it used to work quite a bit better.
Now, in Chrome you don't even see the .NET version.
Sorry your article mentioned to use IE.
Also, my main thing was an attempt to determine if 4.5 was installed.
Thanks very much for the reference though.
Not sure what that is. - can't see .cc links: summary? EDIT
I was able to view it via my text browser (DragonSharq). Oh, that guy provides a tool that he wrote, right?
I'd rather just stick with the LINQpad running the scripts, but thanks.
But, my point is that Microsoft points out entire scripts that you can use to determine which versions of .NET are on your machine but provide no such tool in VStudio or in the .NET SDK.
Just thought that was interesting.
That is an entirely different rabbit hole to fall down. Seriously.
Because, even if you use that tool -- which you have to install the .NET SDK separately to get -- you will find that you also need to determine if the .NET assembly is targeted for a x64 or not. If you run the x32 clrver you won't see the apps running as x64 and vice versa.
This stuff gets crazy.
and you are correct, that is related to the .NET CLR version. In my case i needed to know which versions of the .NET Redistributable the user had installed.
Again, the easiest way was to use LINQPad and add the C# code Microsoft provides in the article.
Of course you can create a simple console app with that code too. That's why I was wondering why Microsoft didn't just do that for us and throw it in the .NET SDK or in VSTudio.
