Get Install Libraries (C# Coding)

A Forum Thread for Steam

I am coding an app for Windows in C#, but I encountered a roadblock with Steam Library.

I've read that 'libraryfolders.vdf' contains other steam libraries. Examples:

"1"        "W:\\Steam Library"
"2"        "F:\\SteamLibrary"


I can infer than "0" is the default library, because it doesn't exist in the file. I am an amateur in coding, and is there anyway to read the file, without coding in a not so elegant way?

I mean, I did an app to read an INI file, but it has splits and two string arrays, but that's static.
