We are doing a preliminary release of a product from our FTP server and would like to know who all installs it so that we can let them know when the full release is done. Can we do this in express anywhere?

There are ways to extract information from the client computer, however, this should not be done without permission from the user - all sorts of rights issues here!

My suggestion is to ONLY allow execution of the program after it is 'registered' with a valid email address etc. This is then done with the users permission and you get the information you desire.

Update Service (http://www.installshield.com/products/updateservice/) will be the product you want to evaluate. If you prefer, you can send me a PM with your contact, and I will have someone follow up with you shortly after.
