I’m new to programming in general, most recently WiX, and in my installer I need to check to see if the end user’s machine has X prerequisite installed, and then check to see what version they have. In my research, I’ve come to understand that to do this, I should do a RegistrySearch on the Windows Registry…but for what, I don’t know.
When I pull up the registry, there are plenty of things in the Cuda location, and I don’t know which one to check for.
I have successfully made a RegistrySearch for another program in my WiX code, but despite doing the same thing for that as I do for Cuda, I get no success with the Cuda search.
Is there some sort of generic Registry Key that Cuda 5 contains taht I can find somewhere, and if not, what should I look for/take from the Windows Registry to insert into my RegistrySearch in WiX?
Thanks in advance for your responses!
