I am developing an application for Windows 2000 NTFS file systems using VC++ MFC version 6.0. I need to query whether "Norton antivirus" is installed on a system or not.
We know that Norton Antivirus runs as a service. So to find its existence I suppose, I should query whether the service for norton exists of not in the system. So my query is that
"Is there any API provided to know existence of a service given its name. (in this case, navapscv is the name of the service, also we know its rest of parameters like display name,etc)"
Or, is there any alternate way to accomplish the same task ?
Please let me know if you need further clarification in this regards,
