I’m developing a Windows only app that will have a link in it to allow the user to open a web-based application to obtain additional information. The web-based application only provides complete support for internet explorer.
So what I would like to do is:
- Check to see if IE is installed. I don’t want to assume that it is.
- Get the path to the IE executable (can vary based on 32 vs. 64 bit Windows)
- Launch the executable with the necessary URL.
I have step 3 working, but would like some examples or suggestions on how to accomplish steps 1 & 2.
