HI
Experts, ....

i have an application which accepts the license key it has two text box

1st textbox accepts the license key
2nd text box stores the key once it is pushed by a push button.

note :- push button is besides the 1st text box.

problem:-
The application is in msi format and created mst for the same,and used install tailor for capturing the steps for accepting license key ,but after i enter the key in 1st text box i have to press the push button ,

then it goes to 2nd text box where it gets stored ,but it is not getting captured in mst, only the key is present in 1st dialog box.

so its getting installed as trial version,,,

any help... will be acknowledged [:)]

What a masterpiece of user interface design...

Anyway, any such construct ultimately comes down to the contents of properties. You need to locate the properties which are "behind" the two text boxes and pre-set them with your MST. The two main authoring tools (Wise and InstallShield) have dialog editors to help you with that.

If you're not using one of those tools, you need to work your way through the 'Dialog' table to locate the dialog in question, then find the controls for that dialog in the 'Control' table. Once you find the text boxes for the dialog in that table, the properties will be visible in the 'Properties' column.

Mohammed, you don't have to at all. All MSIs comprise a bunch of dialogs with properties connected to some of the controls on those dialogs. Provided those properties are present and populated, the install will complete.

Upload the MSI to senduit.com and then paste the link here. We'll see if we can guide you to what needs to be done.

A piece of software which has a trial version is confidential?!?!?! It would be pointless posting a snapshot, so let's just forget it.

Good luck.
