URL of web distribution
I am using Multiplatform 4.52. I plan to provide the installation of our product as web distribution. At install time, i want to know the URL of web from where the user started the installation of our product. Is there a way to find out this??? Any help would be appriciated.
The only way I can think that this would be possible would be to write your own applet launcher.
What are you trying to accomplish? Perhaps there is another way.
The idea is : The server where the installation is would be our main server and all the subsequent installations will update its configuration to know its server.
An example for this is - The application could run in a distributed environment and in this case the database is running only on one of the servers. All the other servers need this information.
The problem here is that all the applet does is...
o Copy the install to the temp directory.
o Run the install launcher.
So, the applet does not pass the URL information to the installer process. In fact, the installer does not even known that it was launched by an applet.
Thanks for the info. But is there a way to get or hook into the applet from the installer???
