I am designing a web application which needs interaction with some I/O devices.
For this I wish to check from my JSP page whether a specific device driver is installed on client machine or not.
If any specific driver is not installed, page will prompt a message regarding missing driver and and will provide a link to download that specific driver.
To achieve above goal, I am trying to read client's windows registry using JSP but unable to do so.
If any other mechanism is there, please let me know.
Also suggest, how to do this for various OS platforms(windows/linux).
