Add/remove programs info
Is there any API function that can return a list of installed
software on machine (like the list in Add/remove programs utility
from Control panel)?
Re: Add/remove programs info
not sure about an api function but you can find them in the registry, ie
(this is for winzip, all (well most) your apps will have a key under the
CurrentVersion\Uninstall\WinZip 6.3 r1
look for the following string value...
remember this is the path for Windows NT, it may be different on other versions
if you execute the data value
(ie C:\\PROGRA~1\\WinZip\\UNINSTAL.EXE C:\\PROGRA~1\\WinZip\\INSTALL.LOG)
in the following string value
which lives within the same registry key, it will execute the uninstall
hope this is useful
