We need the user to specify which network card to use for the software product, at install time.

Does InstallBuilder have any way to do this?

There is not a built-in way of doing that but you may use system tools to obtain the information. Which platform do you need to support?

initially Windows.

On Windows it may be easy to do. Do you need the IP addresses or the identifiers of the network adapters? Like in the "Network Connections" section in the control pane.

The list could be retrieved using a VB script or reading the registry.

I'd like to try reading from registry. How do I loop over the interfaces and present choices based on the ones that have valid ip addresses?
