Does anyone know if there is a Windows Installer property for detecting the version of Internet Explorer installed on the target machine? There is a VersionMsi property that the Windows Installer service populates but I can't find one for Internet Explorer.

Thanks,
Jennifer

There isn't a built-in MSI property, but you might look at InstallShield Knowledge Base article Q103261, "HOWTO: Searching for Certain Versions of Internet Explorer", at http://support.installshield.com/kb.

Thank you. The method in the article is how my installation is currently searching for the version of IE. I was just hoping for a more elegant solution. :)
