How to identify which version of the .Net Framework you have installed

A recent legacy application port, to containerize, as a docker image, running as an Azure Web App, AKA Web App for Containers, required a custom install of .Net 4.6.1. As part of testing an upgrade from an unsupported .Net Framework version 4


The following is a useful way to determine the version of the 4 framework installed. Instead of creating a new hive under the NDP, a modification is performed to update the version, which on first glance is not obvious.


The first thing i encountered was a 500 error message on the site, with no application error log entries as it had not made it that far in the pipeline. was an initially confusing error message in the event viewer detailed below:

  1. Launch the registry editor by typing regedit in a Run box.
  2. On the left-hand side, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full
  3. If the Full subkey is not present, then you do not have the .NET Framework 4.5 or later installed.
  4. Select the key inside the Full subkey:
    NETFrame.png
  5. On the right hand side look for the DWORD value Release:
    NETDword.png
  6. Take note of the 6 digit number in brackets and look it up in the table below:

Windows Azure Storage Emulator failed to install

CodeProject Windows Azure Storage Emulator failed to install When attempting to install a new version of the Azure Storage Emulator either as a separate installation package or automatically as part of an Azure SDK update, you may run into an error message which states the storage emulator has failed to install.

Test connection to remote SQL Server Database from an Application server

While aiming to test whether a SQL connection is succeeding between an Application server and a remote Database Server, it is often not possible to install SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) or Microsoft Command Line Utilities (MsSqlCmdLnUtils) due to the locked down nature of the targets, particularly in test and production environments. A lightweight approach that worked for me recently, makes use of components that have been a part of windows boxes for a long time, albeit different levels of database driver support as the components have evolved, the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC). MDAC provide a Universal Data Link, which can be configured using a common user interface for specifying connection properties as well as testing the connection.  Data Link properties dialog box At Assemblysoft we specialise in  Custom Software Development  tailored to your requirements.

Debugging Python and Iron Python using Visual Studio

Now Python is a first class citizen since the release of Visual Studio 2017 and can be configured directly from the Installation IDE, below are a few settings worth bookmarking for your next python integration project. Debugging Python One of the first things you are going to want to do is step through your code when using Visual Studio, particularly as the language is dynamic and inspection of local and global scope soon becomes necessary. One thing to note is that if you start from a native python project, this is all wired up for you but if you are using .Net to call python modules or want to support an older python version, such as 2.7, you will soon see that breakpoints are not being hit due to symbols not being loaded.   Enable Just My Code To distinguish user code from non-user code in .net, Just My Code looks at two things: PDB (Program Database) files, and Optimization Program Database A .pdb file, otherwise known as a symbol file, maps the identifiers
