Hi... I've been trying to figure out the best way to do this and I don't think I'm searching or looking in the right places... this is basically what I want to do

- person goes to my website
- person clicks my "web installer" (which should work with Win98/XP/etc.. hopefully Mac too)

What I'm trying to do is figure out how to make a web installer that will setup dialup settings and add a shortcut to the desktop. I also want it to configure outlook express.

I need to learn how to:
- make a web installer that does these things for windows 98 to XP
- make the installer show options currently configured for dialup and outlook express

Example:
you run installer and it says something like
"Do you have any other use for the dialup connection named: old-dialup 1?"
and
"Your Outlook Express currently has a mailbox for user: user.... would you like to keep this mailbox?"

Stuff like that... please guide me in the write direction... I don't want the code for it... I just need a good place to start learning how to do it and what it may involve to interact with Windows (and hopefully Mac as well)

Thanx :whistling:
