When I install this locally on my machine I am prompted to login using a web browser. In the hospital environment I need to use this, there is not internet access. How can I then install the program?

Hello Carl,

 

The latest version of JustDecompile tool should not require a direct internet connection. Could you please provid3e more details on the login screen yotu are seeing (and perhaps a screenshot)?

Not sure how this happened, but I was supposed to post this to the Fiddler forum ... I see that the Fiddler link is just above JustDecompile, so maybe that's what happened.

Hi Carl,

 

Are you using Fiddler or Fiddler Everywhere? The latter (Fiddler Everywhere) requires direct internet access while the classic Fiddler does not.

Hi, Nick. I was trying out Fiddler Everywhere originally, which indeed requires internet access (hence the question). I did manage to install Fiddler Classic and it got the job done.

Where were you able to get the Fiddler Classic that didn't need internet to install?   I am in a similar situation where the development computers are in an isolated offline network.   The Fiddler Classic installer I can find is just an installation stub that still requires an internet connection to download and install the actual program.

Hello Jayson,

 

Try this download link for downloading the classic Fiddler installer (which doesn't need an internet connection). Of course, you will still need to distribute the installer manually (in the offline network).

Thank you Nick.   That link is to the installer stub.   Although that version of Fiddler works at runtime without an internet connection, the installer program downloads the installation files on the fly.    I'm looking for a complete, self-contained installation package that does not require internet access during the installation process.

Hi Jayson,

 

The Fiddler installer from the provided link will look for a newer version of .NET (versions 4.5 and above). If the user already has a similar version, no download will be initiated. However, for a case where the environment doesn't have newer versions of the .NET (e.g., it has .NET 4.0 or older), it will try to download and install the latest version of .NET during the installation process.

 

You could manually verify and install a newer version of .NET on the offline hosts, or you could use the following link for a build of Fiddler that works with .NET 4.0

Hi Jayson,

 

I have to revise my previous answer as it contains a wrongful statement! After consulting the dev team, it becomes clear that the Fiddler installer will check your NET version and will try to download the proper Fiddler build for it (and not the newest NET version). Based on the installed NET version, it will try to install the highest possible version of Fiddler.

THANK YOU!   That file worked perfectly as an offline installer on the server I needed it on.
