Custom Windows App

The project would need to be completed on or before October 10th.

The Custom Software Application I have in mind would need to do the following:

Run on Windows XP/Vista as service in the background so that the user does not know that it is running.

Have an installer that allows me to input information about the computer such as Serial Number, Hotel Name, etc - info that will be passed along each time the software "checks in".

When the computer is first turned on - if possible even before the login page - it will pop up a Rental Agreement that the user can either 1) Accept and allows them to log onto the machine or 2) Cancel and automatically shuts the laptop down. On this page it would also have a place for them to put in the hotel room number (which would be required before they can Accept).

I assume the software would need to check for an internet connection before it tried to post the data. There will probably be an initial web browser landing page that the hotel will display with an agreement for using their hsia and this software probably won't connect beyond that until the agreement has been agreed to by the hotel guest.

The rental agreement should be stored in a text file and read in so that I can go in and make changes/customize it if need be - not hard coded in.

The room number would remain resident in memory as long as the computer is on - and doesn't need to be stored on the computer.

The software (running as a service) will check in via Form Post to a website with the following information:


Serial Number

Room Number

Hotel Name

How long the laptop has been on for

LAN IP Address

WAN IP Address

And 5 or so custom fields (that I could put in a custom title/value in)

The Post (check in) would need to happen upon boot up and every hour after that - passing all of the above information every time it checks in.

The room number would also need to have an "administrative password" that would allow me to by pass the Rental Agreement and not check the laptop in (for administrative purposes). I would probably also need the ablility to change the "administrative password"

Features that would be nice but not required:

It would also be nice to have it do a check in (as the computer is shutting down as well) - but not necessary

I might want to have a couple of other custom fields on the same Rental Agreement screen as the room number that would only show up if there was a title for the field. Perhaps the room number could be customized as well.

Ability to change the check in interval from 1 hour to a customized time period such as a half hour, 45 mins or 2 hours, etc.

Other Information

The computer is using Windows Disk Protection and when it is in "rental mode" nothing can be saved permantly to the hard drive. Temp files can be saved but when the computer is rebooted, any changes made to any files will be undone.

I will provide the website/web page and server that the data will post to. It would probably be good to have a configuration file .txt or .ini or something that would store all of the information like the hotel name, url for the post, serial number, etc.
