I have to convert a VB 2010 application from SQL Server to MySQL. One thin this program does the first time it run is to check for a SQL installation. If it does not fine one it then installs SQL Server. I need that to happen with MySQL, So my question is what is the MySQL equivalent to System.Data.Sql.SqlDataSourceEnumerator.Instance.GetDataSources.

Thanks

GetDataSources return visible SQL Server instances in the whole network, do u want to do the same with MySql?
or just look for the client machine and if no instance is running then install MySql?

Hi Sedgwick

I would really like just the client machine.

Thanks

string query = "SELECT * FROM Win32_Product WHERE Name LIKE '%MySQL%'";

            var s = new ManagementObjectSearcher("root\\CIMV2", query);
            foreach (ManagementObject service in s.Get())
            {
                // show the instance 
                Console.WriteLine(service.ToString());

            }

Thank you so much this is just what I was looking for. Out of curiosity how would you accomplish this if you were looking over the entire network?
