What is the formal way to detect which dot net 5.X version is installed ?

I've noticed dot net 5.x puts a version number in the registry.
But - it's a single key containing the latest version.
If you install a prior version as well it will not get reflected.
Is there a way to see all installed versions like dot net framework ?

Also -if you uninstall dot net 5.x - the key is not removed (bug ?)
so it is not a reliable option

(HKLM/SOFTWATE/dotnet/Setup/InstalledVersions/x64/sharedhost Version)
