Hello.
Is there any way that a tester, who does not have visual studio installed on his/her machine, can determine the .net framework version of an application he/she is testing?

Thanks for your help

You'd need ildasm to see what the manifest says the required version, or you can run it and see what it says :)

I have used IL Disassembler and .net Reflector 8.1 also and have been able to view the System.Core version changed to 3.5. But I want to restrict the tester from having access to the codes using disassemblers. Hence is there any other way to determine the .net version of the application?

You could provide a little utility to your testers that grabs the image runtime version:

using System;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Windows.Forms;

class Program
{
    [STAThread]
    static void Main()
    {
        using (var dlg = new OpenFileDialog())
        {
            if (dlg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                try
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(
                        "Assembly Runtime Version: {0}",
                        Assembly.LoadFile(dlg.FileName).ImageRuntimeVersion);
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    Console.Error.WriteLine(ex.ToString());
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
