    The best way is probably to check the registry. MapPoint sets some registry items at the HK_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MapPoint level.
    The different versions have registry folders here, and there might also be one called "Addins" that is used to tell MapPoint of the existence of Addins.
