Hi everybody,

I am working on form in which i created menu. That menu has submenu called 'Service desk. when user click on 'service desk' it take the user to weblink which is opened in mozilla firefox.. I used host built in to launch mozilla firefox. It works fine.
The next functionality i want that is when firefox is not installed on system then it will populate message to user "Please install firefox". How can i check with oracle forms whether firefox is installed in system or not. Is there any way to do it?

I am using solaris 9 operating system and forms 6i.

Please help me on this.

Why explicitly Mozilla Firefox? Why wouldn't you simply direct Forms to open that HTML document? If browser (any browser) is installed on that computer, it will be used to open the document. If there's no browser (is there, today ANY computer in the world that doesn't have a browser?), document will fail to open and I'm quite sure that your client won't care about Firefox or Opera or Netscape Navigator or ..., but would be happy to see the document.

Sriram,

I know that. That topic was posted by me only. But nobody able to help me on this. Following code works fine in windows. But what about Solaris?

declare
v_firefox varchar2(100);
begin
v_firefox := Win_Api_Environment.Read_Registry ('HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox\3.5.5 (en-US)\Main','PathToExe',true);
message('Firefox is installed on: '||v_firefox);
exception
when no_data_found then
message('Firefox is not installed');
end;


how can i find in solaris that firefox is installed or not? Like in window you can find it with the help of registry.

Do you get my point?

Thanks for quick reply Sriram.

I googled pkginfo. Its command that tells how many packages are installed in system but how can i check with it that firefox is installed in system or not because for the first time i am working on solaris. I have no idea about solaris.
