SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom

1) Path: %PROG_FILES_86%\THQ\Nick Games\SpongeBob SquarePants\Battle for Bikini Bottom
File to backup: *users.sb3*
2) Path: %APPDATA_LOCAL%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Nick Games\SpongeBob SquarePants\Battle for Bikini Bottom
File to backup: *users.sb3*

Both paths need to be backed up in case the game isn't run with admin privileges.
Not sure why I wasn't getting the option to submit this automatically through the program today, I used the submission without issues just a few days ago.

I'm afraid I'll need a way to dynamically detect the installation path for the game.
Typically, the game's installer will leave a reference within a registry key of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive.

Here's some theoretical examples:

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SpongeBob
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SpongeBob

There's this registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Nick Games\SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom\1.00.000

No contents other than (default) which seems empty.

Oh, found this registry path.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\SB3.exe

It contains 2 files: (Default) and Path.

(Default) contains the data:
C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Nick Games\SpongeBob SquarePants\Battle for Bikini Bottom\SB3.exe

Path contains the data:
C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Nick Games\SpongeBob SquarePants\Battle for Bikini Bottom

Does this help at all?
