Detecting PIAs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a program that I hope to use VSTO for. But I am not going to get the oportunity to do an install on the client computers. So, before I can do anyting I need to make sure each of the 250 computers on our WAN have the PIAs installed.
    In short I need to be able to detect if the Office 2003 PIAs are installed on a machine programaticaly, quickly, and over a very slow WAN.
    Is there a file or registry key that I can check for that will quickly tell 
    me if the PIA is installed?
