Hi all
I generated database software by Access database 2007.
During installing the software, I want if doesn't exist Access database 2007 in target machine to install it otherwise doesn't install it .(for example: using Installshield software)
one way is: check version of Access database in Registry, i search it in Registry but didn't found.(Do you know how can i get it?)

Access.Application.12 means: "Access 2007"
Access.Application.13 means: "Access 2010"
