I have never used ExeOutput for PHP but I have written in PHP. I wanted to get a read on the feasibility of this goal by asking the community. I appreciate any thoughts on this:
I have a legacy application. Not that it’s material to this question, but to add shock and horror to my ask, it’s written in Adobe Authorware and I’m still able to modify the program if I need to. Due to Authorware’s ancient age it does not support TLS 1.2 or 1.3, which means I can’t post data from it to our backend over HTTPS.
I am researching ways to write a standalone Windows utility that Authorware can delegate to; that receives key:value parameters (such as a URL and other data); posts that data (maybe with curl?); then writes the server’s response to a log file and quits.
I don’t need this helpful utility to open a window or have a UI. In fact ideally it would not. It would also need it to run on my customers’ computers, so ideally it would have no external dependencies and require no customization of local file/folder permissions.
Does this sound achievable using ExeOutput for PHP?
