While looking into some minor issues with some third party applications on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit I needed to verify that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 was installed. I initially looked in the Programs list but I did not find it there so I thought that it might not be installed. I went ahead and downloaded the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installation file and proceeded to install. The error below popped up and explained the proper location to verify the .NET Framework was installed.
