I have a client that want to keep statistics on certain events that occur
during a web based installation. For example, if the DirectX object was
downloaded, or if the user cancelled the installation. What would be the
best way to implement such a feature? Does IS or Windows API have certain
calls that would make this easier.

The initial brainstorm was to have a URL, where I call it at the end of
installation and pass parameters in its search string...for example:

http://stats.company.com/stats.cgi?dX=1&Cancelled=0


and then have the back-end worry about parsing and evaluating the stats.

Thanks!
