Identify the installation of application

Hi Buddies,
I have a test case to verify whether an application under test is installed before starting it.

How to achieve by scripting using javascript?

 

Hoping for reply,

Re: Identify the installation of application

Some ideas:

- Check filesystem

- Check Windows Registry

- Ask Win32 API

- Check install method

 

Some questions to answer before making a robust solution:

- Which kind of app (Windows, Windows 10 app, services application, ...)

- Fixed install directory or not ?

- 32 or 64 bits ?

- Installation method (msi, ...)

 

How will you do yourself ?
