View Full Version : Detecting "Old Products" without having access to the previous version

12-04-2003, 03:24 PM

Is there a way to detect an old product if I can't modify the previous installation? The software is already sent to a customer.

I've tested upgrading using the OLDPRODUCTS property scheme (using FindRelatedProducts, etc) but realized that this only works for "future" versions. It only works so that I can "prepare" this current release to be upgraded in the future.

Is there any way to detect any older versions that doesn't have the OLDPRODUCTS action property created?

Does this make sense?

Thanks in advance for you help!

An alternate method of locating an existing application is to use the System Search functionality. With this you can locate a known file or registry value.
