[Wise script editor] issue with "copy local files" and https source path
I know that Wise Script Editor is an old, no longer supported, package application.
But I need to modify a script due to a weird behavior:
The command : "Copy local files" allow to download a file from network (if support internet script is present). And I use this method to download files from http:// url without issue since years.
But, our repository url migrate on httpS , and since it's no longer working..
The script is adding the current local folder prior the path, like that : c:\users\myProfile`\document\...\https://my_file_url
This behavior do not happen with http url.
Do you have any idea why? and above all : do you have a workaround ?
I tried my google skills for Wise Script, but its too old! So old in fact I also deleted my reference PDFs.
It might be time to convert it over to something else perhaps? Anyway, check out WGET, it might be able to do what you need. Thinking about it now, it would probably be best to create a script to do the heavy lifting, and use a Custom Action to call the script - I think this would give you the best flexibility.
Other bits I would suggest to know about when using a Custom Action
How to: become the LOCAL SYSTEM account with PsExec | Specops Software - test the script and SYSTEM, to make sure it works.
installation - How to execute custom action only in install (not uninstall) - Stack Overflow - blah, there used to be a great symnatec post/cheat sheet about conditions, but I cant find it. Anyway, you want the custom action only to run on install.
