How do I find out if .NET Framework version 3 is on my Windows XP s.p. 3 computer or not? Where do I look? Also, could this .NET Framework version 3 be installed onto a Windows 98SE machine successfully? Would it disturb anything if I try? Would I need to uninstall anything to the XP machine before installing this version 3 NET Framework if it is not already on it? I really have no understanding of .NET or .NET Framework or what it is or what it does. I found a website to a possible Excel replacement freeware program that requires this .NET Framework version 3.

I know this isnt exactly what you are looking for but my quickest answer is this:

Download OpenOffice Calc, it is an MS Excel replacement and it does NOT require the .NET framework.

As for checking whether or not you have it, look at your add/remove programs list and windows components. Also I am not sure if Framework 3 is compatible all the way back to 98SE.

No it is not compatible with 98SE, it requires Windows XP SP2 or later.
