Subject Windows Registry Entry For Firebird...
Author wb7eok
Had a quick question regarding installation of Firebird longterm. I am
writing a software installer that must detect if Firebird has been
installed on the computer, before our application is installed. The
best method of determining this of course is to detect the entry in
Windows Registry.

I have tried installing a couple versions of Firebird and see that
there is a consistent entry in the registry of
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Firebird Project. I was curious to know if
this entry is the defined entry for Firebird in the registry.
Additionally, is the the entry as it will be defined moving forward
with future releases. Obviously nothing is sacred and I am aware of
that? Just trying to plan for future releases.
