This "CHT Utility Application" builds an across-the-web installer for your e-commerce business in co-operation with HNDSETUP.APP (.HZO Maker) and a type 4, CHT-XSA style server, HNDSLFSVXSA.APP to securely deliver installation containers.
This installer has the XSA username and password hard coded (hence "HC" in the name) into the application from the template where it is entered.
A hard-coded username/password of this sort in your installer, assumes you don't need download control over specific individuals. For instance, your installer is provided to a company's IT department to update your product installation on their network. You can still turn these installers off or force them to be updated periodically by using the server config, to change the required username/password.
Other, more individually controllable, variations of this installer are possible, of course. And, in addition to this one, we have several examples in the CHT Toolkit. Search in /HNDAPPS/ for HNDSETUPMKR_XSA• .APP.
First, use HNDSETUP.APP to build an .HZO container with the files to be installed. Set up a server based on HNDSLFSVXSA.APP to deliver your e-commerce web pages as well as your installation containers.
Then use a renamed copy of this application and complete the template prompts in your version of this app to build your install following its example.
Once the template dialogs have been satisfactorily completed, compile the application (your renamed copy of this applcation) to build the installer/updater for the HZO container configured in the template.
Finally, use, HNDSETUP.APP to upload your installation containers to your website using the HTTP upload dialog built into that application.
