[Tutor] RE: REG in XP vs Win2000

I use this code:

def get_regkey_value(key, subkey):
     h = win32api.RegOpenKeyEx(key, subkey , 0 , win32con.KEY_READ )
     return win32api.RegQueryValueEx( h, "" )[0].split('.exe')[0]

FS9_PATH = get_regkey_value(win32con.HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, FS9_PATH_KEY)[:-3]

to find Microsoft FS9 in Windows.   However, it does not seem to work in 
XP.  Is there a better and more effective way to find the FS9's install 

Thanks for the ideas.
