Hi,

I am new to programming, but I would like to do a small VB program that could scan the computer for installed programmes to show up and record them on Windows. It is just like the list on Add/remove in control panel.

Thanks
Bruce

The list of uninstallable programs is located in the registry, at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

where each section key is an uninstallable program.
If you want to read the register, look at

www.vbaccelerator.com

where you can find a class that lets you read registry keys.
Hope this helps you.
