I recently installed Windows 8.1 on my computer.
But when I checked in Programs and Features - Uninstall or Change a Program there was no .NET Framework and VC++.
However, when I use the query

reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Net Framework Setup\NDP\v4" /s

on CMD, I get the following result:

So, does Windows 8.1 come pre-installed with .NET Framework and VC ++?
P/s: I don't know if the VC++ test method is installed ?!
Thank you so much.

    Hi,

    Windows 8.1 comes with a pre-installed .NET Framework, you can check more which version over here:

    .NET Framework versions and dependencies
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/migration-guide/versions-and-dependencies

    As for the VC++, they normally come with the application itself, or sometimes you need to download and install it manually.
