Topic: Which registry keys to look for?

I am attempting to use the software program InstallShield to help an end user to easily install the various software components to the proper plug_ins folder, system folder, desktop and "My Documents" folders. The major complication is weeding out which Acrobat software the end user is running, so that I can look for and install into the proper plug_ins folder. What I am doing is checking the users registry for software keys. Right now I am checking into the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE directory. I am not sure of what key is consistently added for Adobe Acrobat 4.0 and 5.0 and Reader 4.0 and 5.0. I am not even sure if this is the proper directory to look into. Thanks for any help!!
