  • Call URL before and after install

    We are having some problems where users seem to register and download our software but never then login.

    Is there any way I can call a URL when the installer starts and a different one when the installation ends? We would use this to estimate installs started and not finished to locate potential issues.

    Thanks

    After you made sure that the computer has network connectivity, you could use HTTP.Submit() to send a ping to a form, using the same form in both events (e.g. On Startup and On Post Install), but sending a different value for a certain parameter to signal the start and the end of the installation.

    Example:
    Code:
    -- On Startup
    HTTP.Submit("http://www.domain.com/form.php", {event="started"}, SUBMITWEB_POST);
    
    -- On Post Install
    HTTP.Submit("http://www.domain.com/form.php", {event="finished"}, SUBMITWEB_POST);
    It would be your task to write a form to intercept and log/store the information received on the server, which could be done with a log/text file, database, etc.
