I'm not 100% sure if this is in the right posting area.

Basically I'm trying to find a registry value that tells me that bitlocker is currently installed/working on Windows 7.

IF I find a value in the registry I want to make a breadcrum (in the Kace k1000 appliance) for a smart label so we can verify that bitlocker is in fact enabled/working. The main reason is if the computer gets lost then we can verify that it's encrypted this way.

I did a general registry search for "bitlocker" and the only things I've found is a few things saying the options but nothing that I believe says that it's installed/working.

As a work around I can make a registry entry manually, but I'd rather not [;)]

Thanks for the input!

Are you familiar with search engines? They're quite the thing these days...

I have, thanks. I'm not familiar with VB and it's something I'm learning. So I didn't even think of using it for this.

To be honest I appreicate the resource link but I'm not sure how to use it.

I see the value of "GetProtectionStatus" in the methods. So after it returns a Yes/No. I insert a registry value so I can track it Via the Kace 1000.

I'll try and find some samples of adding a registry entry but I'm not 100% how to code it.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll work on it. [:)]
