Registry Query in Wise

Registry Query in Wise

Registry Query in Wise

I need help querying the registry using the Wise Windows Installer.
I need to look for the ip address of the pc and replace it with another one. The problem is the IP address location in the registry is not static... it is different in all the machines although the key name is always the same.

Thank you in advance for your help.

RE: Registry Query in Wise

Why couldn't you use a call to the Internet Protocol Helper (IP Helper) API. I would try tuse this versus make the change in the registry.

my 2 cents

RE: Registry Query in Wise

How does one capture the registry changes/additions that go with an application and pull them into a *.wsi package?   We've been using InControl to generate a list.  Are there any established methods for doing this?

RE: Registry Query in Wise

If your clients and your version of WfWI support VBScript then something like this would work...


On Error Resume Next
Dim ipAddress, oWMISvc, items, item, i
Set oWMISvc = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")
Set items = oWMISvc.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration",,48)
For Each item in items
    if isarray(item.IPAddress) then
        for i = lbound(item.IPAddress) to ubound(item.IPAddress)
           ipAddress = ipAddress & item.IPAddress(i) & vbcrlf
    end if
Session.Property("IPADDRESS") = ipAddress

You can run the script then use the property IPADDRESS.



-Focus on the solution to the problem, not the obstacles in the way.-
