Hi guys,

You can also use the NSIS installer with Inetload. You can download the config stuff via a https connection.
For example:
Make a setup by wich the certificates are stored within a DB. Setup a secure webserver with a php/cgi script to retrieve the files.
Use the md5 plugin also if you want.
Have NSIS ask for a username and password. then convert them to md5-strings and sent them to server.
(eg https://sercure.webserver.ex/getcert.php?u=c4ef76b05908a729f4f857ddee667c14&p=ccf387759518d511af3c9514a6a91b66)

The php/cgi will use it to locate cert and nsis downloads it.


Hi Patrick, very cool your solution; could you please explain more tips about it ? I'd like to make up a similar solution but, unfortunately, i'm not a php/cgi expert :-(
