i have software that puts ip address in registry key such as:


Key has ip address:

I want to compare the 'network' portion of the ip address in this key to a 'static network portion' such as 192.168.1  (/24) for this part i can set variable such as staticnetwork=192.168.1 and if registry contains this string as a positive match then i need to make an action such as install.exe

If the ip address in the key matches the correct network portion, then i need to perform action. and if not then i take separate action.

can you show me how this is accomplished??
