Different ways of doing it, could use a file exist if always in the same directory or another way would be check the registry.  The Registery doesnt guarantee that someone doesnt manually delete it.  I would hate to have you have to search through all the directories though.  Hopefully its installed to the same drive and the same directory structure each time... or hopefully theres a place caputured where it should be in a ini file...
