Since the typical way of installing JBoss is to unzip a zip file into your directory of choice or to run the installer jar which does about the same thing, the only way to find our where and if JBoss is installed is to scan through the directories of all drives. I wrote some code that did this at one time.
Thanks Peter. Since there is no Registry entry / environment variable set by JBOSS, it makes it challenging to find out if and where it is installed.
Will it be possible for you to share this code?
I can't share the code because it is part of a proprietary product marketed by my company. I can tell you that it looked for key jar files, such as jboss.jar, and that the code was written in C#.
