how to find the installed browser

checking default browser 

       >What I would like is to check if the user's computer has any ( i.e. or 
       >Netscape) browser installed, and if not alert him  that he must install 
       >one, (not in the Setup).

       Bruce Epstein Epstein actually crossposted a query with lingo and budapi
       xtra calls to check for browsers and distinguish versions of the Internet
       Exploiter. You would find it at maricopa's digest search keyword "TEST ME"

       lingo has a function which returns the path to the default browser:

       put  browsername()
       -- "C:\Programs\nscp4\Program\netscape.exe"
