How to detect if the product is already installed?

Hi,
I am creating a project in InstallAnywhere 2010. I have the requirement to detect if the product is already installed or not. If its installed the installer will exit. For this do I need to execute custom code or InstallAnywhere provides any build in functionality.


Thanks.

There is a Global registry installed by InstallAnywhere and you can check it for existing installed features.

Hi peczes,

The registry file in case of Unix/Linux in General will be available /var/.com.zerog.regisrty.xml
