    Resolved [RESOLVED] Check if ProgID exists?

    How do I check if a given ProgID String exists in the registry using VBScript?

    HKCR? - Just search your registry for Word.Application for instance.
    But there are more options - if you are not an administrator then sometimes classes get registered under current user portion of registry. But I consider this usually as an installation error, if that happens.
    To read registry key you can use windows scripting shell object:
    Dim wsh
    set wsh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Dim regVal : regVal = wsh.RegRead("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\...")
    set wsh = Nothing
    Using VBS, Java, JavaScript
