Analysis Services Deployment Wizard - 07-01-2010 , 07:35 PM
I am trying to find a way to prgrammatically determine if
Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Deployment.exe has been installed on a server. I
need to first interrogate the machine and then launch the deployment.exe if I
find it. I cannot find a reliable way to determine if this has been
installed. I need to be able to handle installations in the following
environments, 32 bit, 64 bit, SQL 2005 & SQL 2008. I searched the registry
but cannot find a reliable way to find the exact path where the file is
installed. I of course am looking for a faster method than searching all of
the local hard drives.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
