Detecting NetBeui

JB
All,
I am currently working on a project in which I need to detect whether or
not NetBEUI is installed on a particular machine. From what I have seen I
can find NETBUEI under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Enum." For XP machines I
can check all of the installed protocols and see that a "nbf" protocol is
installed, I am assuming Windows 2000+ will adhere to this as well.

Is this the best way to do this type of checking or is there a similar
uniform method that will work for all platforms?

my experience say that this is the best place to find out whether any
software/protocol/device is installed .
In my project (we work on printers) so we always refer system/enum entries
to find out whether the device/interface is installed
