  • CD Keys

    Is it possible to include the CD key entered by a user in a mailto: command?

    eg: mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Help Key=%Key%

    I'm creating a CD for internal use only - if somebody gives it out, then i get a support mail, I'd like to track down who issued it!

    Thanks

    Hi,
    The subject part of the mailto command is very software dependant. On my machine I pasted your action into an OPEN URL action, and when I tested it, the subject displayed properly. But I know, from talking to other users, that the subject does not always display properly. In fact I believe that some e-mail program will not accept the subject command at all, regardless if it is from AutoPlay or Internet Explorer.

      Thanks Mark. The ?Subject= bit works ok, using MS Outlook - it's the ability to include the CD key / password generated by AutoPlay and entered by the user that i want to export. Is there an internal variable name to store the key the user has entered, without having to resort to a second message box (eg 'Confirm CD Key')?

      Thanks

        Hi,
        Sorry I misunderstood your question, the password that the user enters in a GET PASSWROD dialog is not saved in a variable. So you will have, as you said, create a second GET INFO dialog to save this information in a variable.
