Is there anyway to allow the users to supply a (destination) path to the client update program?

We have a specific network install that is required not to affect the installing machine is any way (no INI's or registry changes). We would like to have a TU on the distribution medium that downloads a copy or our web files so that the TU can run against the local network. The only way to determine the installed path is to have the administrator tell us. Can this be done?

If not an answer, could someone from IR at least acknowledge that this post has been read?

First of all, please note that this is a _users_ forum. not a technical support forum. Although we do go above and beyond (we are a real bunch of geeks) to provide support here, these forums are for users to interact with users. Please note that you are entitled to free, personal email technical support by emailing support@indigrose.com.

That being said, how about reading an INI file from a network drive to variables and using that info in the Server File Locations? That way the Network Admin could configure it and everyone could access it.

My apologies. From a nature of most of the questions and the IR replies I thought this was first line technical support. I will use the support E-Mail.

No problems. Again, we do pride ourselves on our involvement in the forums and they are a great place to post tech support questions. It is just that some very specific and elusive problems like you are experiencing may need to be dealt with more one-on-one.

However, next time you have a "How do I..." type question, post it heer and you'll probably be pleasantly surprised at the responsiveness of our users and staff.
