Serial Number Generator

Postby iamfromk » Mon Oct 04, 2010 2:55 pm

Hi,
I need the algorithm of Serial Number Generator provided as an example with InstallAware package. I want to generate the serial on server side with PHP from customer name and company and after that to email the generated serial to the customer. Please help.
Thanks

In the Serial Number Validator sample, the included script, Serial Number Generator has all the logic laid out for you.

Yes i have checked that script file but unfortunately i can't replicate in PHP this 2 lines:

Set Random Number Generator Constants = 24337, 17312
Set Random Number Generator Seed = 31415

if someone have done this before maybe will give me some ideas ?
Thanks.

It's not clear what the constants are used for. I'm going to look at the code to see if I can find out what it does.

The seed should be pretty straight forward.

For PHP, you'll probably want to use srand() or mt_srand()

How about creating a single-executable using the sample to generate the serials for you?

You can have it write the serial to file and call it using PHP's exec()...
