Complex validating of InstallOptions user input

From NSIS Wiki

Author: KiCHiK (talk, contrib)


NOTE: If you are using 2.0b4 and above, you should use the new leave function for custom pages. This way you can validate the input without destroying the InstallOptions dialog first. See test.nsi in the Examples\InstallOptions folder for an example.

Description

This script demonstrates how to verify the user input from InstallOptions. It asks the user for a user name and a password and gives the user 3 chances to get it right. There are 3 possible user name and password matches, user1 ~ user1 password, user2 ~ user2 password, and user3 ~ user3 password.

This script requires up.ini. The contents of this file you can find below the script.
