Outlook Express upgrade

when you install outlook it will ask you if you want to upgrade your outlook express, thus combining them so if you change a contact in outlook it will change in outlook express.
i want to know how to know if the user upgraded his outlook express or not.

You can see if a user is sharing contacts with Outlook by opening Outlook Express's address book. Go to the Tools menu > Options command. See which option (share or do not share) is selected.

Not sure if this actually answers you question but it might...

Check the UseOutlook value under this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\WAB\WAB4

If it's a 1 (one) then OE is using Outlook's contacts.
