    Hello,

    Applications produced by my project, sometimes (not always) relys on
    the presence of the Media Framework on the machine of the final user.
    When an application created with my project uses Media framework, is
    launched on a machine where JMF is not installed, it crashes badly
    (hard reset necessary).
    So my question : is there a way to detect if the JMF is installed on
    the machine of the final user?

    Thanks for you input,

    Francois

    A hard crash because JMF isn't installed sounds like some other issue.
    Worse case, it *should* only throw an ClassNotFoundException or the
    like. Perhaps your end user does have JMF installed, but the video
    driver has a bug in it which causes the crash.
