How to generate UUID in InstallAnywhere proj using PHP?


Recently we moved to InstallAnywhere from InstallShield MP11.5.
I'm in the process of creating & building .iap_xml project using PHP. In the process I find difficult in generating the UUID for components.

I used php function com_create_guid() to generate GUID. This GUID doesn't match/accept in InstallAnywhere.

What kind of algorithm or rule that InstallAnywhere follows to generate UUID?
How should I generate GUID/UUID for the components?

Please help me.

Thanks & Regards

If com_create_guid includes curly brackets around the value it returns, you'll want to remove those for use as a component's Unique ID value.

There are also some code samples on here.
