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.
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. Configure a global username/password combination to control installation access by your installers.
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.
The username/password required by this application for access to your server, is not hard coded as in HNDSETUPMKR_XSA_HC.APP. The first time this application is run, it pops up a dialog which requires the user to enter the correct username/password combination that you have provided to them. Thereafter this dialog does not re-appear unless it fails to successfully contact your server (because perhaps you changed the required server credentials).
At that point, new access information can be provided to the user-base, or not, depending on the update privileges to which they are entitled by your update policy.
