Quick way of finding DLL in System32 directory?

What is the best way to programatically find a file, in this case a DLL, in the C:\Windows\System32 directory?

Disregarding security considerations, you can use either the File or FileInfo classes.
Module Module1
	Sub Main()
		Console.WriteLine(If(System.IO.File.Exists("C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll"), "Sytem.IO.File reports that C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll; exists.", "Sytem.IO.File reports that C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll; does not exist."))
		Console.WriteLine(If(New System.IO.FileInfo("C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll").Exists, "Sytem.IO.FileInfo reports that C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll; exists.", "Sytem.IO.FileInfo reports that C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll; does not exist."))
		Console.ReadLine()
	End Sub
End Module

Open in new window
