    If the .NET Framework isn't installed, your C# code won't run.

    Thank you for your response. Ok so what would be the best way to do this then? I have an app that requires the .NET 2.0 be installed before it runs.

    You could check the registry entries to see the installed .NET version, some info here:

    Then maybe have a plain C++ program to validate .NET and, if present, launch your real .NET program?

    You could use an installer to do that. If you have a Standard of Professional edition of Visual Studio, it will be a cinch.
    Otherwise, you can use a free installer and a script or a plain C/C++ app to check if it's installed.
