Does anybody have experience with releasing internet apps into the wild?

Recommended Posts


My current (aka 'first') AutoIt app is doing a lot of connecting to the internet. I'm wondering if I'm likely to run into roadblocks with proxies, firewalls, or virus scanners. Hoping somebody with a bit of experience can let me know how best to avoid those issues.

Currently, I've chosen to use _IECreateEmbedded() for my connections. Partly because it was the first approach that I managed to get working. I'm thinking that I should probably stick with it, since it seems to me that would avoid the above mentioned roadblocks. Am I right, or am I better off using InetGet(), and assuming I'll get out safely on port 80/443?

Thanks, in advance, for any tips/suggestions/pointers.
