Detect version of .Net (not in a Setup project)

To detect if .net framework is installed or not on client's computer,
and if yes, what is its version, I found an article:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];315291

But it can be done in a Setup and Deployment project, my program doesn't
needs setup and deployment, it runs just on CD-ROM and for simplicity I
don't want to add Setup, Shortcuts, etc.

I want after inserting CD-ROM that contains my program, appear a welcome
screen with a button.
If .net framework 2 is not installed, the button label should be:
"Install .net framework 2" and links to dotnetfx.exe on the CD-ROM
If .net framework 2 is installed, the button label should be:
"Run Application" , or simply Application starts automatically.

I can create such welcome page using VB.Net, but I think this welcome page
also needs .net framework to run. :~D

I have to use another programming language to do so (Delphi, VC,...) or
there
is a simpler way?
