Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knows how, or if its even possible, to check for the amount of RAM and the available disk space on a target user's machine. I want to check to see if the user's machine meets the minimum requirements prior to installing a software package. Thanks for your help in advance

Wouldn't this be the job of the installation software? I don't believe demoshield does any of the installation itself....

We are using DemoShield as a front end to InstallShield and we were hoping to use DemoShield to display the system information and compare it to the minimum requirements prior to launching InstallShield. It didn't seem that DemoShield offered these options but I thought I'd ask and see if there was something I missed. Adding these abilities to the next release would be a nice feature though. Thanks for your response
