i want to make a auto detection to find the dir for Mozilla Firefox.exe

it must return white this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

it is just like this but then i need the exe

; AutoITCOM 3.1.0
; Testing ByRef variables on COM function calls
; Retrieving the Internet Explorer home page value using registry-read by WMI


$HKEY_CURRENT_USER = 0x80000001

$strComputer = @ComputerName

$objReg = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
$strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main"
$ValueName = "Start Page"
$strvalue = ""
$return = $objReg.GetStringValue($HKEY_CURRENT_USER,$strKeyPath,$ValueName,$strValue)


If $strValue="" Then
    msgbox(0,"WMIGetStringTest", "The value of your IE start page is either Null or could not be found in the registry.")
Else
    msgbox(0,"WMIGetStringTest","Your Internet Explorer start page is: " & @CRLF & $strValue)
EndIf

Merchants

is it what you are looking for?

MsgBox(64,"",RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\firefox.exe" ,""))

Yes please do use RegRead instead of the COM Object. And it seems Sh3llC043r points to the right location as well, works on my computer (Win7 x64)
