Subject: opening url with get parameters before installing
i'm trying to build an installer that includes a logic where, before start copying files and folders, will open a specified url attaching the local macaddress of the computer where the installation is run.
I have a feeling this is achieveable with createinstall but didn't quite get how to do this.
Thanks in advance!
Do you know how to get MAC address?
If you want to open URL with a browser then use the 'Shell Execute' command.
Path : CUSTOM PATH
Also, you can use the 'HTTP GET/POST' command. It allows you to get server's response in the silent mode.
Thanks for the quick reply!
I'm using the free version for now, so the http get/post is not available, but i'm cool with the open URL part (just tried and it works like a charm).
For the mac address part:
actually i know how to retrieve it but NOT in the installer context where i need to get this value programmatically and store it (in the right form, i need it with ":" separator instead of "-") into a variable the setup process can use.
Is this something i can achieve?
At this moment, CreateInstall setups cannot get MAC address.
We have such function which allows to get it but you cannot use 'Source Code' command with Free version.
If you use Free version then you should run some application for getting MAC-address which save it into the Registry or some txt or INI file. After that, you can read it there.
