How to determine if you already have the .NET Framework version 4.0

You can check to see if you already have the .NET Framework 4.0 installed by clicking Start on your Windows desktop, selecting Control Panel, and then double-clicking Add or Remove Programs. When that window appears, scroll through the list of applications. If you see Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 listed, the latest version is already installed and you do not need to install it again.
