    You'll have to retrieve it from the Registry. Each app on the list is
    a separate subkey under:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

    Note the text that appears on the list is the "DisplayName" value
    (usually the same as the subkey name). If you need help with the Reg
    Api, there are plenty of examples around, including
    http://www.allapi.net/
