    I am writing an application which needs to get a list of all installed programs in computer including the version / update date information. As I know by far, it can be done by analysing the content of register key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall", but I think it's a little complicated.

    Any one know any easy way to achieve it, like some simple APIs?

    Thanks!

    Thats where I get my information from. You just simply go through that registry tree and pull out what you need. It may not be a 'one-liner' but rarely anything is with programming :)
