Have a look at Win32API::Registry. The registry holds all kind of deep and dark secrets. Type Start->Run->Regedit to have a browse if you are not familiar with the registry. Don't *change* anything unless you know what you are doing. Here is a short example:

use Win32API::Registry 0.21 qw( :ALL ); my @software = qw ( Excel Word Outlook PowerPoint Perl ); for my $software (@software) { print RegOpenKeyEx( HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Offi +ce\\$software", 0, KEY_READ, $key ) ? "$software has registry key\n" : "$software seems to be missing ".regLastError()."\n"; } __END__ Output on my system Excel has registry key Word has registry key Outlook has registry key PowerPoint has registry key Perl seems to be missing The system cannot find the file specified

Of course Perl is not missing but it is not registered in M$ Office!
