Hi,

I'm trying to verify what version of installer is on a user's machine using
vbscript on a web page.

Is this possible to do, and if so has anyone tried it before?

Thanks,
Ross

You should note that the "windowsinstaller.installer" object is not marked safe for scripting in IE
browser hosted script...

<html>
<head>
<script language="vbscript">
sub document_onclick()
set installer = createobject("windowsinstaller.installer")
msgbox installer.version
end sub
</script>
</head>
<body>
Click me for Windows Installer version...
</body>
</html>
