Searching Add/Removing programs

Hi

I would like to search Add/Remove Programs aka Uninstall Programs for particular applications.
In short I want to search whether particular application is installed or not. I dont want to use GUID because we will
not be knowing it

Is there any way to search by particular applicartion name in Installed software list?

Is there any feature equivalent to System Search in Installscript Project?

Re: Searching Add/Removing programs

I would think you would need to enumerate the keys for Products under the Installer registry key and then get the display name for each key. That should be valid for all applications that have an entry in Add\Remove Programs | Programs and Features.

It is the only way I can think of to find items by product name.
