Detecting .NET 4.5.1

According to Microsoft on this page, this is how you detect .NET 4.5.1

However, on both of the Windows 8.1 machines I currently have, I see a version for release of 378675.

I wonder if they’ve got it wrong.


After further investigation, on my 32 bit windows 8.1 machines, I’m seeing 378675, including after installing the packages.

On 64 bit windows 8.1 machines, I also see 378675.

However on 64 bit windows 7 machines, after installing the packages, I see the correct version of 378758.

This is especially humorous in light of yesterday’s post where an 8.1 app will report that it’s 8, causing the installer to repeatedly try to install 4.5.1.
