[wix-users] Dotnet core install detect

I'm struggling to find any good/solid way to use Wix to detect a valid dotnet core install?

It's easy from commandline to just run dotnet --version and check the response number if any. However, running a command line from Wix is discouraged.

Any actual viable configuration for detecting if .Net Core 2.0 or higher is installed and if not providing a message to the user to point them to the download site?

Also no I don't want to package my application with publish -r so all the framework is included in my install.
