    Java detect plugin Adobe Reader

    Hi Guys

    I am new to Java scripting so hopefully one of you can help

    I have a script I am working from.

    I need to search machines for adobe reader and the version number

    A bit of the script i have looks for Shockwave player below however I want it to look for adobe reader and the version instead

    I need to know what to input so it looks for adobe acrobat instead of shockwave

    It usees the JavadetecPlugin

    The script also searchs for browser, flash v, java v succesfully

    I have the full script if it is useful

    If you need any more information pleas let me know

    many thanks

    r

    function CheckSW()
    {
    if(PluginDetect.isMinVersion('Shockwave', ShockwaveVer) == 1){
    document.write('<span class="correct">Shockwave v' + PluginDetect.getVersion('Shockwave') + '</span>');
    }
    if(PluginDetect.isMinVersion('Shockwave', ShockwaveVer) !== 1 && PluginDetect.getVersion('Shockwave') == null)
    {
    document.write('<span class="error">Shockwave not installed</span>' );
    }
    if(PluginDetect.isMinVersion('Shockwave', ShockwaveVer) !== 1 && PluginDetect.getVersion('Shockwave') !== null)
    {
    document.write('<span class="warning">Shockwave v' + PluginDetect.getVersion('Shockwave')+ '</span>' );
    }
    }

    PluginDetect is for flash.

    iterate the navigator.mimeTypes collection(s) to examine installed plugins.
