Steam installation path for utilities

I have written an app to tabulate the currently assigned keys:,
github. A user reported that it
does not work on Steam installations because the current settings are store in
a different location - in his case, it is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MicrosoftFlightSimulator\Input, but as far I see
from different posts, this is frequently changed. Is there a safe way to
detect the current Steam installation path?

Hello @dmenne , Maybe you can try using the registry to get the steam install
path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Valve\Steam\InstallPath Hope it
helps, Regards, Boris

Sorry, Boris, I only read this today. Thanks for the suggestion, will put it into the next revision.

Problem is that reading that key seems to require admin privileges, so I have to do it during install. Correct me when I am wrong, I just noted that in a similar case and have not tested the WOW-Node
