View Full Version : Customized download URL

09-11-2012, 07:18 AM
Hi all

I want to use a Suite installation to install our products via the "Download From The Web" feature.

The problem what I have right now, is that the download location (URL), for a specific package can only be constant *but* I need it configurable.

I try to use a property [UpdateServer] to get the possibility to change the download location at runtime.

Setup.exe /UpdateServer=server01

Expected behaviour would be that the Suite installer use the following url as download location: http://server01/package/test.msi.

*BUT* i got the error:
An error occurred while downloading the file http://[UpdateServer]/package/test.msi

Is there the change to change/configure the download location during the runtime of the installer?

Thanks Mirek

I think a server-side redirect may be a more appropriate solution for this. However the request seems reasonable enough (so long as you provide a default value for such a property), so I've filed IOA-000073948 to track this enhancement request. In it I'm requesting a way to update Download or Update URLs (possibly through expanding properties, possibly through new command line arguments). Will either approach address your need?

Thanks for the request.

If I understand you right, you requested two possibilities to update the download/update URL:
1. via properties
2. via special command line parameter

If this the case, I am fine with it.
