[C#] Check if a particular program is installed
Simple one (Me hopes)!
I have a program that manipulates a text file, which another program will in turn use, but I want my program to check for the presence of the other program on the users hard drive. The program I want to check for is installed properly using an installer.
I think it can be done by checking certain registry keys, but I don't know any more than that, aside from the name of the .exe, the program knows nothing else about the program. Any pointers?
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
The installer probably adds an entry to the user's Add/Remove programs list, which is at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.
Please post questions to the forums, where others may benefit.
I do not offer free assistance by e-mail. Thank you!
