Is Internet Exploere Installed?

Postby Jim Brammer » Thu Feb 07, 2002 3:42 pm

Web Browser (IE not installed?)

So far, have we come up with an idea of how to detect if Internet Explorer is installed? (That way if an application uses IE and they don't have it installed, we can do something else..)

Hi Troy

I dont know if this helps but this would check if IE is installed and gives the result in the variable "exists"

Im not sure if this file still exists if IE has never been set up or it might start the connection wizard.

FileExists "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" "exists"

You should use the Registry for this!! This key list the version on Internet Explorer installed on the machine.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

As described above, by first reading the registry to aquire the version number you can compare that value against the version numbers in the following table to determine what specific version of IE is installed as well as other applications.
