How can I find out what version of Excel is installed?

Hey guys,

Can someone tell me or show me how I can programatically discover what
version of Excel a machine has installed, or if the machine has Excel
installed at all?

If anyone has some sample code that would be great.

Thanks

Flack,

What I do is search the Registry for the key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application. Its presence will tell you if some
version of Excel is available, and the CurVer subkey - the current version.
