How to detect installed software (and version) on client terminal?

Hi everyone,
I build an education desktop app where users will create an account.

During the on-boarding, I want to save them the pain of answering questions like their…

So here are my questions: is there a plugin or a way to…

  1. Detect if a specific piece of software is installed on a machine (and more precisely, Microsoft Excel - which, I guess, is always installed in the path on MacOS or Windows),
  2. Detect its version.

Thanks to you all !

I created a plugin as Blur Apps : Get Browser & Viewport Properties Plugin | Bubble to help with something like this. Give it a go!

There are also some alternatives available in case it doesn’t do exactly what you need it to

Free plugin developers are why I have hope for the future. Thank you

You can try to guess Os and browser with the help of plugins (as suggested), but there is no way to have access to a list of software installed in the device because you don’t get that kind of access with a browser.

That’s what I was afraid of… Thanks for you relevance.
