why not generating the file on the fly ? you probably know that the modders tends to be lazy (I am). If your manager can generate the XML file for the modder, why can’t it generates the exact same file from the archive you downloaded ? (like extract the archive in a temporary directory, generate all the stuff, move the temporary directory contents in dropzone).

Bonus point: that would make the manager compatible with every mod 😉

By the way, you can find the installation of JC3 this way (using something to interact for the register database, that you may found in the language you use):

hive: LocalMachine, subkey:"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Steam App 225540" value:"InstallLocation"
