Detect Installation of WLM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm writing an add-on for Windows Live Mail (Last Version), I need to know how to check if it's installed or not?

    I did search but didn't find an official document on this topic.

    I think it must be via registry, but don't know which key to check for sure?

    And to not conflict with Windows Mail (old one in Vista) or Outlook Express etc?

    Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum and thanks for advise.
