View Full Version : Read string from installer in uninstaller?

04-22-2003, 09:08 AM

I think it is perhaps just a "rtfm"-question, but I tried create the following thing in ISMP:

- During installation, the user types in a password (which will be passed to a "Exec Action"-script)
- As the first panel of the uninstaller, this password should be asked and the uninstaller should only start when the password is correct.

At the moment, I store the password in the Win32 registry and read it with the uninstaller.
Does ISMP store such inputs in its files residing in "/_uninst" so that I can use a variable instead of the registry?

Or, in other words, can I -in the uninstaller!- access the values of input fields of the installer?
