Hello all, I have a hot item I need info on asap.

I'm making an installer for a mod. I want to check the registry to see if FL is installed. My question is - which registry entry is universal and will allow me to check to see if the game has been installed?

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\1.0
You could also read AppPath under that key to find where it's installed.

For some reason it's not letting me just look at that. It wants me to read a value from something such as the Digital ID and check it against a reference. However, I don't know if this ID is universal.

Im using Advanced Installer btw.

Looking at the online guide, it looks like you want to do a Registry Search using "Local Machine" for the Root, "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\1.0" for the Key and "AppPath" for the Name; Type would then be Folder, I guess.
