I'm playing around with Windows API functions.  I was just wondering if there was a way to use them to pull the information from the Add/Remove Programs box that is in Control Panel.  I guess I just want to pull a list of programs I have on my computer by using the Add/Remove programs box.  I would want to save it in a text file or something like that...I am just curious as to how I would go about this.

Sorry:

You need to manage some registry api to enum all entries in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\

i haven't this code just right now. Maybe tonight.
