How to check whether a software is available or not in our machine using testcomplete tool.

Hi,
I need some information/javascript code to check whether a software is available or not in my machine in automate manner.
If I run the test- it has to check in control panel whether the given software is available or not.
If available- it has to print - yes it's available.
Thanks in advance.

You can use this method to look for the program file in the folder for the start menu.

Hi,

 

The actual check (and, thus, the code) depends on your tested application. It might be just a check of some folder, as it was suggested by Marsha; or it might be a query to WMI; or some other flag that indicates whether or not the tested application is installed in the system.
