I want to pass the values taken as input from user in InstallShield/Script to my java application.

For example: At the time of installation the user is prompted for credentials via a InstallShield dialog. I want to pass these credentials from InstallScript to my Java program/application, where i can try to validate these credentials, and notify the user if the credentials passed or failed.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

It depends on the way you want to pass them to your Java program. If you launch it from your InstallScript, you could pass the variable value on the command line. If you launch it from a custom action, you might have to copy the variable value to a Windows Installer property first, using the MsiSetProperty funtion. Same if you want to store the value in a registry entry.
