    • To check if Microsoft .NET Framework is installed, open Command Prompt from Run. Enter the following command reg query
      "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\full" /v version
      Check the displayed version. If the version is below 4 or if it’s not installed, install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 from here.
    • To check if PowerShell is installed, type PowerShell from Run. If PowerShell is installed, check for its version number by running the command $PSVersionTable.
