Win7 Ships what version .Net Framework ?

One of the new software i wana install requires .Net Framework 4.0 and hence i was wondering what version of .Net Framework does Windows 7 ultimate ships with?

Also, how can i check which version i am having by default ?

7 includes .net 3.5.1. Visit Windows Update and you can download and install 4.0 with the various hotfixes/updates/etc.

No, .NET Framework 4.0 is still a separate download. Get it here: Download .NET for: Desktop, Server & Development | Microsoft .NET Framework

You can either download it yourself or go to Windows Update and it will be listed as an optional update.

Net Framework 4.0 comes in in the third or fourth round of Updates after installing Windows 7 with SP1, and is followed in the next round by any needed Security patches.

Windows Update scans your system to see what's needed. It has never been better.

Thx guyz for all your replies,
Now as i am downloading offline package that is compatible with 32/64bits... i am having two versions here, is it all okay if whichever version i use as the software that require it, also has link to download 4.0 and it points to the 48Mb version.

Go with option 2, the client profile one.
Either version will work fine, actually, but the first one includes developer stuff you won't need unless you plan to write your own .NET code and compile it...
