    There is no one central list of installed programs, especially since not all
    of them have specific rules they must follow such as appearance in
    "add/remove" programs and such.

    Hi,

    Look in the registry under this key;
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\<main_EXE_file_for_the_app_to_look_for>

    Most (but not all) setup routines adds this key and put the complete path
    to the exe as the keys value. VB's Package and Deployment Wizard puts this
    info correctly.

    Regards
    Bernie
