Identifing whether s/w component is uninstalled or not

2 posts in this topic

How to identify a component whether its uninstalled or not from Microsoft Add/Remove programs.

I want to identify through script before uninstalling a component so that I cannot uninstall an already uninstalled component.

Is there any option to know the above?

Thanks,

The list of programs installed on a computer (at least, those which are listed in Add/Remove programs or Program and Features depending on your version of Windows), are stored in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

You'll need to populate the keys and look for the software in question. Give it a shot, using the help file to understand RegRead() if you don't already, and post back here with your code if you hit another wall.
