    Hello,

    the information that you asked can be found on the registry and the location is:
    My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Word\InstallRoot

    well that applies to Word 97 only not others.. Word 2k uses 9.0 instad of 8.0

    I guess otherwise your is to make a harddisk scanner and use it to find it...

    and how to access registy, look under the Topic Areas:Registry

    I want to get the path of MS Word (eg. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\WINWORD.EXE) using code.
    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks,

    Greg!
