Version 4.5 or Higher of Microsoft .NET Framework Is Required

Release Date: 9/10/2021
Version: 8.5 & 8.6

When you start up Elliott 8.5 or 8.6, you may receive the following message:
Version 4.5 or higher of Microsoft .NET Framework is required,
but not available on this computer. If you continue without
version 4.5 or higher, results are unpredictable.

We strongly recommend that you donwload and install the 
latest Framework 4.5 (or higher) before continuing.

Do you want to continue now anyway?
See sample screen below:

The above message is from 8.6 which is implemented as a warning and will show up each time you start up Elliott if your PC fails the .NET checking.  In Elliott 8.5, it is implemented as an error condition and you won't be able to proceed.

Checking .NET Framework Version on Your PC
To check if you have proper .NET Framework installed, you may use "Regedit" to go to the following path:
    \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full
See sample screen below:

You can use the following table to check the "Release" value to determine if you have the minimum .NET version requirement:

.NET Framework version

Minimum value

.NET Framework 4.5


.NET Framework 4.5.1


.NET Framework 4.5.2


.NET Framework 4.6


.NET Framework 4.6.1


.NET Framework 4.6.2


.NET Framework 4.7


.NET Framework 4.7.1


.NET Framework 4.7.2


.NET Framework 4.8


 Since the value of "Release" in the above example is 461814, it means it is above .NET Framework 4.7.2, but below .NET Framework 4.8.
