QUESTION
----------------------------------

How can I return the installation directory of SilkTest?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

When installing any software a user can specify a different install path to that of the default. At times it may be necessary to retrieve this.

The following code retrieves and prints the install path for SilkTest 2006 R2 from the Windows XP registry.

[ ] //Borland Code
[ ] use "msw32.inc"
[ ]  
[-] testcase InstallDir() appstate none
    [ ] //Get regvalue for reg entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation
    [ ] 
    [ ] INTEGER iKey = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE // defined in msw32.inc
    [ ] STRING sPath = "SOFTWARE\Borland\SilkTest\2006 R2"
    [ ] 
    [ ] String sItem = "DIRECTORY"
    [ ] String sOutput = ""
    [ ] 
    [ ] 
    [ ] String sRegValue = SYS_GetRegistryValue (iKey, sPath, sItem)
    [ ] //Print (SYS_GetRegistryValue (iKey, sPath, sItem))
    [ ] 
    [ ] Print("The current DIRECTORY is: ",sRegValue)
[ ] //End Borland Code
