OpenDental Install Location v16.4 | v17+

Hi Guy's,

We need help in identifying the OpenDental Installation (& installed location). We are working on a plugin installer which needs to confirm OpenDental installation first.
Please Guide!!!

Regards,
N.

I highly recommend reading the DLL Naming and Update Sequence sections for ways we suggest distributing your plug-in dll to workstations.

That being said, the thread post you linked is correct in that the registry will have an INSTALLDIR entry made for any computer that has run the Open Dental "Setup.exe". It will not be present if the computer had Open Dental put on it in a different way or fashion (e.g. copy the files, which is an acceptable way to put Open Dental on a computer).
The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit.
