Detecting Office 97 / - Professional on 95/NT
Posted on 1998-08-18
i need an absolute secure way 2 detect wether office 97/office 97 professional is installed on a win95 or a winnt machine.
this must function on local setups as well as on network setups.
it must only return true if it is *still* installed.
my 1st thought was 2 check the registry (win95) in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MS Office 97
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MS Office 97 Professional,
but i don't know if this is
a) the same on winnt and
b) always unequivocal
any other suggestions?
