Hi,

Try this one:

uses Registry;

function GetInprocServer32(const clsid: string): string;
begin
  result := '';
  with TRegistry.Create do begin
   try
    RootKey := HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT; { HKEY_CURRENT_USER by default }
    if OpenKey('CLSID\'+clsid+'\InprocServer32', false) then begin
      result := (ReadString(''));
      CloseKey;
    end;
   finally
    Free;
   end;
  end;
end;

// Usage:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage(ExtractFilePath(GetInprocServer32('{08229782-89C8-4028-BB74-75BB58EF1488}')));
end;

Regards, Geo
