Have a look at:
How to detect the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 or greater in an MSI-based installer

Shouldn't be that hard to take the info and author a custom action in conjunction with AppSearch

You don't need to use WiX to perform this, the site describes the information to find out which version(s) exists on the computer.
Just use AppSearch to search for the "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\<minimum .NET version RegKeyName>" and use the property specified for the AppSearch entry as the condition for the launch condition.
