Checking for presence of a plugin on opening file

Post

I'm at a loss how to do this.

How do I check that a particular plugin is present when a user opens a file?

I've tried to make a step in a script that will create an error so I can use an if step to deal with it. However even when the plugin isn't installed I can't generate any errors, even though the calculations that depend on the plugin don't evaluate properly and show <function missing> in any calculations.

I'm expecting an error 113 but all I get is 0

 

The plugin in question is Regex Plugin

I'm using FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced. Mac OS 10.5.7

 

Any help or pointers would be appreciated.
