Hi all,
For my desktop application, i want to add explorer like dektop function. But problem is that how can i detect the path of the programe. My programe imports all data from Windows explorer now if there is a new app installed or user want to add any shortcut or icon on desktop then how can i detect the path of the app.
For example: If user wants to add Adobe Photoshop on the dektop how can i detect automatically the path of Adobe Photshop exe file?? Is there any registry settings for programs where paths are saved???

Thanx

Are you saying you need an application that'll tell you the path of certain, already installed application on your system? Could this application use a textbox you'd use to add the name of the application to search for, like the Search mechanism available in Windows!
