Check is Firefox portable is installed

I'm fiddling with a launcher and am curious how to check for a specific application installed.

In my case I want to check for Firefox Portable (and other compatible browsers) installed and use it to open a html file, otherwise default to the default browser.

Does PA use some ini file I could query the locations of installed apps?

I'm looking a way to use the PA preferred application to open the file and might take in account any changed foldernames or multiple versions installed.

Wait til next week?

If you can wait until next week, there is a piece of the PortableApps.com Platform you can use for this.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Don't get too excited

John sometime speaks in biblical terms. You know the earth was created in 7 days/2 Billion years. Something like that.

More like proportional

The time taken to release something new is directly proportional to the amount of time we annoy him. So get annoying! Blum

If it is directly

If it is directly proportional, the more we annoy, the longer we wait. So maybe we should stop annoying him.

Now if it were inversely proportional, then I'd say start annoying now and don't give up.

I'm starting to

believe that wsm23 "7 days/2 Billion years" comment was right, lol. 13 days, and no PortableApps Platform... Sad Sooner or later (most likely the latter) it will be released, and I will be there to download it!

Bill,

I respect your beliefs, but your statement is a misrepresentation of millions in the Christian community. Please, don't make such a broad statement that could entail an entire community believing something, especially with religion. Please, I really don't mean any offense :).

It was a joke

Bill didn't state whether he actually thought the earth was created in 7 days or not, he was just being slightly sarcastic.

I'm not replying to any replys to this to avoid religious discussion and conflicts.

PS, Kevin you have around 30 downloads for both your apps.

I'm not going to start

I'm not going to start something, so I'm not going to correct anyone any further. But thirty downloads? Great!

Kevin

Can you email me wsm233 at gmail dot com?

I would like to send you a youtube clip that will explain my views without getting too down and dirty here.
