copy MAC address to new application

Recommended Posts

flyonthewall

hello,

i'm upgrading our end-users to the latest cisco ip communicator version(from 2.0 to 2.1). there is a MAC address i need to get from the old (2.0) to use for the new version (2.2). i want to get the MAC address, then add it to the upgraded version during the install.

here is a screenshot of where the MAC address is located.

any ideas would be great, otherwise i guess i will use Window Info, or have to open the application manually and add the MAC after the install.

thanks for any help or suggestions.

Kerros...thank you for the reply.

after some more test runs....so long the users have the old ip communicator installed, the install of the upgrade automatically gets all the information needed so i do not need to uninstall the old, or even worry about getting the MAC address.

thanks again.
