Default Installing an application on user machine.

I am trying to create a installer for my application.
When this installer is run, it is suppose to install this application at Visual Studio installation directory on the machine where it's run.
Now, I know that Visual Studio installation path can be hard coded in the installer project properties, but is there a way to get the VS installation path dynamically, like from registry and then install this application there.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
