Looking Within the Windows Registry
Posted on 2002-03-10
I am needing to determine (boolean) if a certain program (such as Internet Explorer 5.0) is listed in the Windows registry. How is this done? I found a function RegQueryValue() within help but am not sure if this is the correct function or not.
Please list #include files and short code example. Also, how do I differentiate between different versions of the same software and look for the latest version? Is there a difference between the registries for NT and 98/XP that I need to consider in the code?
