Searching for installed components and COMs

Hi,

I want to check the server for installed Coms and other OLE components. How can I do it ?

Here is a good script in ASP that will find a good deal of components with the ability to add additional components you are searching for in the INI file:

Forgive me if I am wrong, but that looks like a script that reads a file that is custom made, not one maintained by the server.

A simple script to get the classes would be

<cfregistry
      action="getall"
      branch="HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID"
      type="key"  
      name="qRegistry" />

<cfloop query="qRegistry" endrow="20" >

      <cfif qRegistry.entry IS NOT "CLSID" >
            <cfregistry
                  action="get"
                  branch="HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\#qRegistry.entry#"
                  type="key"
                  entry="ProgID"
                  variable="thisKey" />

      </cfif>

</cfloop>

Yoiu could derive more information, like path to dll etc...

                        entry="ProgID"
                        variable="thisKey" />

No, it only show the installed objects with correspondence record in Windows registry. I'm seeking something completely different.
