Is it possible to use regular expressions when creating installable detection for a published package?

  • I want a package to be installable if any of these files exist:
Wellknown Directory:
Files Paths:
  1. Adobe\Shockwave 8\Plugin.dll
  2. Adobe\Shockwave 9\Plugin.dll
  3. Adobe\Shockwave 10\Plugin.dll

I am trying to make a system that may have and outdated version of Shockwave, to install the latest version of Shockwave utilizing the the file version of the Plugin.dll in the C:\Windows\System32\Adobe\Shockwave # folder. The # changed with the major release.

Are you aware of any other detection logic I can use with WPP? That is the only location I have been able to find Shockwave version info.

You can try to detect any Registry value. Look into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
