HowTo / Notes

Verify .NET Framework installation using .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool (Microsoft)

Last update: 2023-06-16

To verify .NET Framework installation(s) you can use the .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool from Aaron Stebner (Microsoft) which checks for proper installation of .NET assemblies and registry entries:

$ wget ''
$ unzip
$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet wine ~/netfx_setupverifier.exe

Select the .NET Framework version you want to verify and evaluate the log file manually if verification failed.
