Hmm, I never had demons fly out of my nose - I think I need to try harder!
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
One of the regulars on the newsgroup comp.lang.c invented a notional system - the DeathStation 9000. The C compiler for that system would interpret undefined and implementation-defined behavior in the worst possible manner, up to and including creation of nasal demons...
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
Inorder to prevent the theme from modifying my application i have disabled the manifest file the admin rights is found in the manifest file.what should i do to prevent my application being modified by theme without disabling manifest.Your suggestion would help me a lot.
I've got a relatively large project (400K lines) that was developed in Embedded Visual C++. For all intensive purposes, you can consider EVC++ pretty close to VS6. We're migrating to a new OS that requires the use of at least VS2008. Needless to say, the much older compiler allowed us to commit a multitude of sins that the new compiler tosses it's cookies on.
I'm pretty sure I could pragma myself to death, but that's "cheating". I'd like to lift the code to a more modern state. Does anyone know of any tools or approaches that can be applied to a set of code that would do most of the heavy lifting? For example, the older compiler allowed methods with no return type. Most of these will be void returns, but at something like 8K errors, it's going to be a lot of $hit shoveling.
Appreciate any ideas.

See here. Examples on the Net and here at CP are almost limitless.
If you are looking specifically for "installed" programs (rather than just any and all exe files), you could use WMI with the Win32_Product class. It's a tad more code, however, with all of the COM involved.
