Something like this should get you started:

$path = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"
    For $i = 1 To 1000
        $key = RegEnumKey($path, $i)
        $val = RegRead($path & "\" & $key, "DisplayName")
            If StringInStr($val, "AutoIt") Then MsgBox(0, "", RegRead($path & "\" & $key, "InstallLocation"))
    Next

Many thanks for all your answers...

@JLogan3o13,

This script is working very well, many thanks, but your example suggest me 2 questions:

1- I think there is no other way that using the BDR ??

2- Is there a way to scan the BDR (uninstall) until the last Key (1 to 1000 is too much or not enough..).

Regards

Jean
